  1. CPU Cooler:COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 Continuous Direct Contact 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Compatible with latest Intel 2011/1366/1155 and AMD FM1/AM3+

  2. No not even close
  3. Downdraft or low profile coolers are not as effective as tower type coolers like the evo.
    The hot cpu air gets recirculated with a downdraft cooler.

    With a tower type cooler the hot cpu air gets directed toward the case exhaust..
    And, there are usually more cooling fins available to extract heat from the cpu.

    For $30 or so, the evo is a good cooler, Xigmatek makes a similar one.

    If your budget is in the $80 range, the Noctua NH-D14 or Phanteks are about as good as it gets.
    Fully the equivalent of all in one liquid coolers.

    All will fit your motherboard.
    Only if you have a small form factor case would you have a fit problem with any of them.

  6. Thanks geofelt .Two last questions Seasonic or corsair,and will 650 or 750 watt suffice.Card is going to be a 660ti from msi.
  7. Here is Guru3Ds power supply recommendation:

    GeForce GTX 660 Ti - On your average system the card requires you to have a 450~500 Watt power supply unit.
    GeForce GTX 660 Ti SLI - On your average system the cards require you to have a 700 Watt power supply unit as minimum.

    If you are going to overclock GPU or processor, then we do recommend you purchase something with some more stamina. http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/msi_geforce_gtx_660_ti_power_editon_oc_review,7.html

    Both are good; I happen to like Seasonic if the price is acceptable.

    650W is fine, it should be good enough even for GTX660ti in sli(which I do not recommend)
    Here is a handy chart:
