Default CPU cooling with OCZ Reaper impossible...

Original post:
Well, is the stock good enough?
Processor Koelers | Informatique
That's where I buy my stuff, it's Dutch. I have i7 930, but it's making some noise and when gaming it sometimes reaches 80deg celsius.. The names are in original name, so the Dutch won't bother you.
I found the NH-D14, but it won't fit cuz of my OCz reaper HPC ram... >__> Will c14 fit?? I'm not buying new ram, cuz it was pretty expensive.
Edit: Could be from other sites too and not only Informatique.

I just found out about every good CPU cooler can't fit in my PC, because my OCZ Reaper's Heat spreaders are so high, that nothing will fit.
Does this suck or does this suck?
Buying new RAM.. I spent alot of money on those reapers...

This is the best bang for your buck CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Plus | RR-B10-212P-GP | Informatique in my opinion at least.

However, you'll probably need to remove your motherboard to install the backplate unless your case has a cut out in it.

Solid choice! Bit expensive though, but I love the quality of Noctua products. Still have one of their original NH-U12 heatsinks actually.

Too bad the d14 won't fit because of my too high OCZ Reaper HPC RAM -_- Also, there's no compatibility list for c14....

the self contained easy install water coolers will not interfere with ram and keep things pretty cool
I have a phenom II 1100T and the highest temp ive seen is 41 C.
but it was also really cold outside and the heat inside was cranked

no i am not talking full loops or anything
look up the corsair h 50/60/70 series and there are a few similar units around as well
I have the H-50 on a push pull. i have found that at idle there isnt any wicked low temps but under load is where it excels
