Recommendations for Cooler for Biostar tz77xe4?
 
I need a recommendation for a high end cooler for my tz77xe4. D14 and the like interfere with the pci-e slot according to Noctuas site. I do have an EVGA Superclock Cooler that I may put it in but I am not sure if that will fit either. I would assume most coolers of that size would likely have the same problem as the D14.
Not really interested in any Closed Loop Liquid Cooling at this time. If anyone has any recommendations it'd be greatly appreciated.

I found a review and the Alpenfohn K2 Mount Doom cooler fits on there. Its pretty big so that gives me hope that my EVGA Superclock may fit. Any other suggestions? I also put in a few emails to various companies asking what they offer that may be compatible.

You should reconsider the AIO's. I too only wanted an air cooler for the "reliability" and loved the NH-D14. Due the fact that I like to fiddle with my computer, and the mass of the Noctua, I went to a Corsair H100i. I now can say I probably will never go back to air cooled except on low end systems.

The best recommendation I can make for an air cooler is the good ole Coolermaster 212 EVO.

Don't get me wrong. I'd love a big 240mm AIO but my case doesn't accept it. Its a stupid MSI Interceptor Nighthawk. I can probably attach it with a bit of fooling around though. I am considering picking up a h100i anyway and seeing what I can do. I do prefer Air but I am not set on air. I don't want a 120mm AIO I can say for sure. I have a h60 already that I will probably use in the meantime if the superclock doesn't fit. I just had a PSU explode and take out my system. Risking my system again with an AIO scares the crap out of me. Especially I had trouble with 2 AIOs already. Luckily not with leaking. 1 Bad pump and the other didn't mount properly.

Worst case scenario is picking up an Evo like you mentioned. At least thats also the cheapest option if I have to use it temporarily before getting a new case.

I never heard of that Mount Doom cooler before. It looks pretty good I must say. It gives me hope that there are other high end Air units out there that will fit.
