Need help deciding air cooling fan

I recently bought a p8h61-m LE mobo.

Problem is, as you can easily see from the pictures, there is very little space between the socket, RAM slot and the gpu slot.

This means that I am looking for a cpu fan with length and width that will not exceed the size of the 1155 bracket.

Does anyone know a good cpu cooler for this?

    You do realize my board is m-atx?

    Also the PCIe x16 slot is the first expansion slot on the motherboard. (while a usual atx has a pcie x1 slot prior to this)

    This means the motherboard has about 2cm less clearance, so it's clear there will be a lot of compatability issues with larger coolers.
