Cooling my cpu

Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations on cooling . I just bought a "AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition Thuban 3.3GHz, 3.7GHz"(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819106008) and did not realize it did not come with a heatsink /fan and so I just using what I had with the old athlon three core. I am utilizing all of my memory slots that have "G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600" (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819106008) and they have the high built in cooling fins. As I want to keep using all of my memory slots the only solution I can find is something like the "Antec Kuhler H2O 620 Liquid Cooling System"(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835209049). Is this my only solution or is there a decent air fan/heatsink I can use also ? The mobo that I am using is the "GIGABYTE GA-890GPA-UD3H AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI"(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128435). Used mostly for video editing,gaming (cod3,4),WoW.,BF3. Not sure at the moment but I may also try letting a co-worker use it for a cad program for autos. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

  1. Best answer
    COOLER MASTER Hyper 212+ is pretty good for ram compatibility=slide up fan to clear closest module.

    Or worse case scenario mount fan on opposite side.
  2. Don't get the antec ones. Get a corsair h60 or h80. Or spend a bit more money for a legitimate water cooling setup and oc. Otherwise get the 212~!
  3. Sorry "amuffin" but I will have to accept "davcon" as the best answer due to being the first to mention the Cooler-Master Hyper 212+. you are right that (me) anyone should really go after a legitimate Water Cooling System rather than these but I thought those were it until you shown me the light ! I will definitely purchase the Cooler-Master Hyper 212+ and install it asap. Thanks again for both of your help !
