Depending on the size of your case, either one of these will work well:


XIGMATEK Dark Knight

I have built two AMD 955 systems using these two coolers and they both run extremely quiet and offer excellent cooling.

Just to voice some support, the HDT-S963 should be a good choice, just to help compare, I run an Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185125 ) on my Phenom II 940 and it does a great job, but the Xigmatek is slightly cheaper, so that'd be my choice here.
