    Some nice simple questions for all you cooler experts....


    Motherboard is a DFI LANPARTY DK X48-T2RS, which has a rather large copper chipset cooler surrounding the CPU socket.

    CPU is an 8500

    The questions are this:

    Can anyone recommend a cpu cooler that:

    1. will not hit any of the chipset cooler around the cpu socket, including capacitors etc.
    2. will be relatively quiet (120mm fan if possible)
    3. will cool effectively and allow overclocking


    An added question: would you recommend a horizontal or vertical fan arrangment as I have no clue if the chipset cooler needs good airflow


    Many thanks in advance :toast:

    Wherever I can find the iron.
    A Zerotherm Nirvana NV120 should be just fine!
    IggSter says thanks.
