i am looking to build a new gaming rig and i am trying to choose a cooler for my build the components i have so far are -

AMD FX-8350 AM3+ 4.0GHz

Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 ATX AM3+ Motherboard

SanDisk 64GB Pulse SATA 6GB/s 2.5 Inch SSD

Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5"

Corsair CX 600W 80 plus Bronze

Sapphire RADEON HD7970 3 GB

Patriot 8GB (2x 4GB) 1600MHz DDR3 Viper 3 Black Mamba

here are the main components that could affect the CPU cooler.

i am really looking for a Closed Loop water cooling system but am open to anything that won't impact my ram

Thanks in advance

  1. 1. I'd choose a better PSU. Try the TX series.

    2. I'd rather go the Intel route with Intel Core i5-3570K instead of the FX-8350.

    3. The Patriot Viper 3 RAM are low-profile RAM, so any CPU Cooler should have clearance for them.
