Greetings -

Looking for a short (<135mm), available cooler for a (125w) Phenom II X6 1090T
on my MA785GMT-UD2H. My old Shuriken (Rev. B) is just not cutting it.
(Currently mid-40's at idle.)

Contenders thus far:

Xigmatech Loki
Noctua NH-U9B SE2 92mm
Cooler Master GeminII

Any egregious oversights?
Any recommendations among or in addition to these?

As long as the CPU stays safe under load, I value quiet more than übercool.
Ease of installation also counts big.
(Tho' I fear that anything I use is going to require that I unseat the motherboard
to implement an underside bracket.)

Thanks kindly,

- Richard

Don't bother with the Loki as it is not only low mass but the fan included isn't all that great either. I would go with either the Noctua or the Gemin2 cooler. I personally like all copper coolers with high flow fans.
