  1. OCZ vendetta II
    The hyper 212+ is another common suggestion. There's one more but I can't remember it off the top of my head.
    If you want to go crazy, there is also the megahalems.

    As for the Vendetta II, it seems to no longer be sold by newegg.

    Massive and fan sold seperately:

    I personally use my stock cooler. These are all the ones I looked at once when I was considering getting a new heatsink. From my research, they all performed really well.
    There's also this chart of tests on hardwarecanucks:

    The top ones on the list I have heard at least mentioned, but other than the ones I've already said, I haven't looked into them myself.
  6. CM V8: That would work. Fits in Antec 300 according to NewEgg customer comments.

    Do you have an good ideas on what i should get.
  8. Has a fan controller that will let you slow the fan down for quieter operations. Just be sure to check the temps till you get it set right.
