My System Specs

Default Oops

I ordered a heatsink too big for a build, it's for a friend and has a giant 360mm fan that gets in the way. Anyways I'm open for suggestions on some low profile heatsinks for 775. Basically from the base of the mobo I have about 5-5.5" of clearance.

Edit: If they sell it at Canada Computers, or something similar that would be ideal as I live right near one.

Why not just move the fan or remove it?

I'm guessing this is for a cosmos S?

XCLIO A380, it's a huge fan and there's no way around it. Definitely not a case I would've chosen, but he was set on it. It looks like the best one is the Noctua one, seems to get decent temps as well.
