Need help deciding on a cooler

I've been deciding between which of these 2 would be a good upgrade for my cooler. Planning to upgrade my cpu in the near future so just doing some proactive shopping. Still new to computer components but learning as much as I can. I only chose these ones because of their ability to attach to the current AMD mounting system. Thanks in advance. I have top and rear mounted exhausts.

  1. Identical units! the top down SCRT-1000 (Rasetsu) is a YASYA turned on its side.
    It offers people with cases under 7" wide a large heat sink.
    The Yasya is a good unit with the ability to add a 2nd fan.
    Rasetsu = 130mm tall
    Yasya=159mm tall.
  2. wow after another closer look. wow. lol. my case supports up to 160mm is 159 cutting it too close?

    Most cases over 7.4" wide will support 159mm tall heatsinks.
    What case do you have?
  4. I've been on the fence about ones with new mounting brackets. I looked at the guide in the sticky and am still unsure. Is it difficult to do with the mobo installed with a cut out in the back and how much pressure should I apply when screwing it on.

    You'd have to remove the mobo from your case.
    What cpu?

    It's one of the easiest coolers to install.
    The Yasya is huge and a pita to install = even though its clip-on.
    If you don't want to use a back-plate cooler this isn't bad.
