I have a new computer and I was wondering if a Thermalright Silver arrow extreme would fit my case (Aerocool X_Predator X1) and my mother board (P8Z77) with Corsair Vengeance high profile RAM (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9-1600MH...). If not then could you recommend an air cooler with similar performance, or water cooling, but I know that 120mm radiators aren't worth their money. Thanks

But that can be solved by moving the memory to different slots. I do not think it will fit because the case has a 158mm clearance for the cooler and it's 165mm. Your other option is to go water cooling something like the Corsair H80i or the H100i. Or get a budget model heatsink like the Hyper 212. If it still doesn't fit, adjust the fan up a bit and if that still doesn't work, put the fan as pull instead of push. That's what I'm doing and I noticed a 1-4C temperature drop. Hope this helps.
