Megahalems/Thermalright Venomous or even the noctua nh-u12p are top notch coolers loved them all only 1 i still don't have is the prolimatech really didn't need 3 great air coolers
KK, Megahalems ($50 on sale from NCIX, NO FANS included)
Thermalright Venomous X, $75, no fans included...
Noctua NH-U12P ($79, including 2 X p12 fans...)

With two decent fans (push/pull), you reach, or go above the price of the Noctua Nh-14D ($89).

Both the Magahalems and Venomous X are way up there in terms of cooling capability, thx for the advices.

Zalman MAX would be a good fit too, as well as the Flex with the right fans.

ST
Zalman? They're back in the race? I though they were left in the dust when S775 came out (I may be way out-to-lunch)..

Is it this one?:

NCIX.com - Buy Zalman CNPS9900MAX-R Nickel Plated Copper Headsink Red LED 135mm LGA1156 LGA1366 LGA775 AM3 AM2 - CNPS9900MAX-R In Canada.

You can get a good PMed price on that MAX...really nice
Also, on the Zalman, there is NO issues with RAM clearances, another plus.

From benchmark reviews:

Thanks soultribunal, its a model to consider...
