Default Just bought a Fatal1ty FP-IN9 - need heatsink advice

Is there anyone out there who has done a build with this board and can recommend a good fan/heatsink that will fit?

I'm going to go with a Core 2 Duo, E6600 or E6700. On this board, the North bridge heatsink is large and very close to the CPU socket. I've found a couple fans that will fit, but they're cheap and the reviews on Newegg are spotty. I've seen some people using the Ultra 120, but that's a passive solution, and I'd prefer to have a fan.

I plan on spending up to $60, but I don't want to order the thing and then find out it doesn't fit the board. The case is a Thermaltake Armor, so space shouldn't be an issue.

All replies are welcome, but I'd prefer to hear from folks who are using this board.

Thanks in advance!

Ultra 120 is NOT passive solution. They include brackets to attach a 120mm fan.

I missed that on their web site, but you're right.
