Hey guys.
I'm about to buy Phenom ii x4 965 BE, and I need a good CPU cooling.
I do not want to go Water Cooling, so I would like to find like the best,
Air Cooling.
Please Help me out.

My Case will be CM 690, if that helps with dimensions.

The next stepping has already been listed on provantage, I really doubt that It will be long before it is released.

The CNPS9700 is not considered a good cooler.... well at least that is what I have heard from more than 5 users here on Toms that actually have it.....

Go with the Core Contact just like xiara suggested....

or you can try this one :

the zalman is a good cooler.. its just more looks and not the best cooler.
when it first came out there was only a couple better but since then many that equal or beat its performance have come out.

That being said I wouldnt pay extra for it.

No, you can connect the fans to the fan headers on the board. The 4 pin fan header is for the CPU cooler.

Yes it will work, I thought you wanted to connect a regular case fan on the 4 pin header instead of the CPU fan.....
