I'm trying to build a fast gaming pc and I am having some trouble finding a cooler for my CPU because I've heard people saying how hot the 3970x gets and it got me worried so I need some advise from the community.

I'm looking for a cooler that does not hit my ram and I would like to avoid water cooling but if it is my only potion I will give it a shot, also I don't need to overclock although that would be a good feature I don't need it.
