I need a HSF for a Llano processor (FM1 socket) that will fit in a Silverstone ML03B case (4.13" height). Not planning on overclocking. The cheaper the better.

Suggestions appreciated.

My choice, Scythe Big Shuriken 2 Rev.B Low Profile CPU Cooler, SCBSK-2100

Thanks, but if it is only running at stock, doesn't that seem like a bit of overkill?

Perhaps a better question is if the FM1 bracket is the same as the AM3+/etc.? If that is the case then there are plenty of options to choose from. There seem to be few aftermarket coolers that specify FM1 as compatible.

Not overkill, if at stock and temps at 100% good, you can go fanless, and a small case will have limited air circulation unless you have additional fans.
