What cpu cooler should I use for Cooler Master elite 120 case?

I'm looking for a "low" profile cooler to fit in a cooler master elite 120 case
http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/product.php?product_id=3102&product_name=Elite%20120%20Advanced

CPU clearance needs to be under 60mm, and I'm very new to the low profile cooler market so I need recommendations...

I'm looking to add an i5 3450/3470, not looking to OC, just want to make sure that it stays cool and quiet enough while I'm playing high-end games. :)

  1. I think you will fine down draft heat sinks to be best of use for your situation. Here is a Toms Hardware article that may be helpful along with the cooler i recommend.

  2. I got the same case with a "cooler master vortex 211q" cpu cooler. If you want a graphics card, this is most likely the best solution because of the lack of space. It keeps the cpu about 10-15C below the stock fan under full load. The fan is also significantly bigger than the stock fan and makes a lot less noise.
