    HI, Ive been looking for a good air cooler for my rig but no so expensive, but i have 3 problems in question...
    1. will it fit my case (corsair500r) will not touch the 200mm sidepanel fan?
    2. My mobo uses the first SLOT i mean the pci.e slot is the top one to close to the lga
    3. i will not oc the cpu so a good air cooler will be enough,
    what about the coolermaster Hyper tx3, cm n520 , those two 2 are small but i duuno if they really do a good job.
    my thoughts on the 212+ or evo but size????
    Please need your help on this.
    Thanx......
