need to oc phenom2 955 quad core to 3.8 ghz and stock cooler sux.
will be using arctic silver thermal paste.

do i get the zalman:

or hyper 212plus:

i have a rosewill destroyer case ( ) which measures: 19.09" x 7.48" x 16.14" (bezel included)

and i think both will fit but im not sure if the hyper 212 plus or the zalman will be touching the ram (gskill ripjawsx) since the ram is parallel to cpu socket?

which one cools the best and is best for price?

Get the Zalman performa cooler. You can add a 2nd 120mm fan to it for more performance. With 1 fan it outperforms the hyper by approximately 7 degrees.

If you add a 2nd fan get this one
AC Fluid Dynamic .3k-1.35k RPM Max 57 CFM w/ 4 Pin PWM

The Zalman CNPS10X Performa height is 152mm from the base to the tip of the heatpipes, so as long as your case is 180mm (~7.08 inches) wide or more, you’ll be fine.

care to link the test, otherwise you are just talking out of your usual
