I decided to get a new CPU cooler because although the AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE's stock cooler is good, it is way to loud. I'm looking for a good, cheap AM3/AM3+ CPU cooler that will fit in the Zalman Z9 plus (midi case).I don't know how big the CPU cooler can be because I am unsure of the dimensions. The motherboard will be a Gigabyte GA-970A-D3 AM3+. Any suggestions are welcome.
YOu may try Thermalright Macho 120. By leaning towards rear of the case, the cooler will stay away from the high profile memory heat spreader.
