  1. Best answer
    Are you looking for a cooler for overclocking, or just to keep your hardware cool?

    Which motherboard and case you have? Some coolers won´t fit in some boards and some cases.

    Keep in mind that the board/case dimensions are very important elements to considerer before getting a cpu cooler.
  2. no i am not planning to oc my mobo is Gigabyte X58-usb3 and my Case is Tuniq 3
    my case width is 20 cm which is enough for most coolers but mobo i am not sure of

    my case: http://tuniq.com.tw/Chassis%2520Info/tuniq3/tuniq3.htm
  3. If you don't plan to OC then you don't need an aftermarket cooler.

    The cooler master is an often recommended cooler.
  4. but with stock cooling under load my cpu temp goes above 80 i want it to remain in 60's
  5. Have a look at the hyper 212 plus dimenssions and see if it fits your case and mobo. i took one and temps dropped 20C
