    Hi, Im using an Akasa AK-925 CPU cooler but wanted to know what other's are using on the same board, I bought TRUE 120 but with the CPU fitting's being Verticle and the RAM slots so close this will not fit, it covers 3 of the four 4 ram slots and is horizontal so the fans would blow up towards the top of the case, fine if my case had the PSU at the bottom, I could put a exhaust fan at the top, but I dont so my PSU is at the top of the case which means the heat is pushed against the bottom of the PSU, I had to return it and although Im not looking for a replacement imediately I want to know what others are using on this motherboard.

    Im after the best possible silent cooler which will keep my AMD Ahlon 64 x2 5000 BE (AM2 CPU) cool with the fan blowing towards the back of the case, where I already have an exhaust fan which came with the case. It must not block any of the ram slots or atleast not the second slot, that way if its only blocking the first slot, like my current cooler, then I can install the ram into slots 2 & 4 till I upgrade to AMD Quad or wotever next year (hopefully AMD will have done something brilliant by then). It only needs to cool this CPU but may also be compatible with newer AM2+ so when I upgrade my CPU I dont have to upgrade the cooler, I dont think I will mind upgrading the cooler. I may also upgrade my RAM so I will be using all four RAM slots.
