Need a new CPU cooler for my AMD X4 965 BE. Any recommendations?

I have an AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE CPU. What's the best air CPU cooler I can buy that's under 145mm in height for my X4 965 BE?

  1. Go for the Cool master 212 Evo

    Edit: My bad didnt see the under 145 bit, what about the Cooler Master Hyper TX3 EVO CPU Cooler ?? only 136mm in height
  2. I think the 212 evo would be too big for OP at 159mm, but this one might work:

  3. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103106, it seems similar to the $30 hyper 212 but is under 145mm and costs more

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835146026, its an nzxt and should be good and under 145mm

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103177, low profiles, way under 145mm, read the reviews seems good

    Visit the manufacturer product links, and you'd see that the nzxt heatsink is 160mm and the cooler master hyper 612 is 163mm. Basically, any heatsink with a 120mm or larger fan is likely to be over 145mm tall, unless the fan is parallel to the cpu.

    My bad was looking at fan dimensions
  6. Cooler Master Hyper N 520 is at 141mm, comes with dual fans, and for under $50 lol
