Default New Heatsink Suggestion

So I had the XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233003 ) but it proved to be too tall due to the 360 mm side fan on my new case.

Can anyone suggest a high quality cpu fan ( socket 775 ) that lays down 'horizontal' rather than these 120-150 mm (h)

I was looking at the zalman's but I figured I'd make a post just to get some more opinions.

Thanks

The best cooler that will fit in with your requirements is the Thermaltake Big Typhoon: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...yphoon&x=0&y=0

It was the king of air coolers until the TRUE came along and is still a great performer.

It seems like everyone is going with the 4870

What else did you put in your rig?
