Hello,

Need some advice on selecting a quiet CPU cooler for a new PC build. It will mainly be used for photo/video edits (Photoshop CS4; Premier Elements 9). The components I have in mind are:

CPU Intel i7 950 3.0 Ghz
MOBO Gigabyte GB X58A-UD3R (rev i or 2)
RAM 3 x 4MB (12MB total)
Graphics Card nvidia Geforce GTX460
H/Drives 3 x WD 1.5TB SATA
Pioneer SATA Blu-ray burner
Pioneer DVD burner
Case Antec P183
PSU Seasonic M12D 750W
Windows7 Pro

I am looking for CPU cooler that would not in any way restrict the 6 memory slots as I want to have the option to expand the memory to 24MB.

Any advice would be very much appreciated.

Thanks

The hyper 212 plus with 2 Noctua NF P12s would be dead silent and wouldn't restrict the ram slots.
