Default Let's go heat sink shopping.

One of my previous builds I muffed the heat sink size big time. Had to go with the stock cooler that came with the cpu chip.
Not this time. Antec has the spec on the heat sink clearance >
Maximum CPU Cooler Height
6.7" / 170 mm
I'll have to assume that's with MB and CPU installed.
Last time I wanted to use this > XIGMATEK Dark Knight II SD1283 Night Hawk Edition CPU Cooler with Stealth Aerospace Industry Thermal conductive ceramic coating ALL intel AMD IVY BRIDGE compatible - Newegg.com
It was version 1 and all chrome. But it was too tall to fit the server case and I gave it away. I'm eyeballing the version 2.
But then the point of this post is to find out what you guys and ladies use and/or reccomend.
I think high 90's to low 100's at idle is too warm. Like to get those temps down some. No, I'm not interested in liquid cooling.

It's not as expensive as any of the ones mentioned above, but I use a Delta DC Brushless Fan, very cheap, but very powerful....

Default Re: Let's go heat sink shopping.

I have this:

Antec Kuhler H2O 620 Liquid Cooling System - Newegg.com

And the radiator is sandwiched between these:

Thermaltake AF0032 Case Fan - Newegg.com

My CPU never gets above 40C.
