I plan on pushing the i5-2500k to 4.0 GHz and light video overclocking. ASRock 768 EXTREME4 Gen3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Sapphire HD 6950 2GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... i5-2500k - got it from Microcenter, theyre having a sale $179.99 In Store Only G.Skill Ripjaws X 16GB DDR3 1600 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Cooler Master HAF 922 Case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I was set on the Cooler Master Hyper 212+ but Ive read that it blocks the first memory slot. Im filling all 4 slots for a 16GB setup so this would be no good. Is there a HSF or LCS for the CPU I could use for under $50? I was looking at the Antec Kuhler 620, but apparently its not better than most air systems. Thanks for your help.

I just googled this pic and you could even slide the fan up if you need to. Share orionshadow September 7, 2011 12:03:29 AM Best answer selected by orionshadow. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
