Need suggestion for an air cooler

Hi All -

I am doing a new build using a Thermaltake Armor+ Mid-Tower and want to know which air cooler will fit.

I have previously built with Thermaltake's full tower version of the same case and barely squeezed in a Thermalright Ultra 120 - the fit was tight because the big side fan of the case chewed up room. I'm concerned that the mid-tower, which is an inch narrower, also has a side fan and will therefore need a shorter cooling tower. Motherboarrd will be ASUS P7P55D-E Pro, holding an i5-760 processor.


Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks for the information.


I have looked at each of the coolers suggested in the article and find that they are all very tall (120mm or greater). The Thermaltake model recommended by beanoslim features a "bent over" configuration which holds promise, however. :)  I will take a look at the horizontal restrictions in the case to see if it encounters issues I am not yet aware of (video card spacing, etc)


Thanks again for the suggestions!

Sorry - I should have said "Thermalright" in the above reply.

Thx.
