Default 140mm fan CPU coolers?

Hello,

After installing my components into my new Corsair 500R, I ran into an issue of clearance between the rear exhaust fan and my CPU cooler (Thermalright AXP-140). I just put a new 140mm Bitfenix fan on it, and really prefer the 140mm to a 120mm (Noctua previously). I've been looking around at 140mm compatiblie coolers, but don't want something a.) Very Expensive, or B.) Super Wide. I am not against water cooling, but most systems use 120mm rads, and my top 2 spots are taken by 140mm exhaust already, so I don't want to remove those.

Is there much out there that can take a 140mm fan that doesn't already come with 1 or isn't the size of a Noctua D14?

Thanks!

thermalright archon is an excellent 140mm fan cooled heatsink, but comes with the best 140mm made in my opinion (little more cfm then a scythe GT, while staying quieter).

Hm, seems like a second fan can be added as well.

Who sells Thermalright these days?

Theres also the NZXT havik. A little bigger than the coolermaster H212.

Memory Express has it in store, and online, I owned a silver arrow and darn near shed a tear when I had to let it go (RASA RX360 kit handed to me). The craftsmanship is only bested by Lian Li IMO, one word of caution if you are a silent PC freak then thermalright isn't for you... tight fins make a bit of noise, but cool like all hell.

I'm not seeing a Thermalright Archon in stock or even on Memory Express's website... ?
