Is your case is not wide enough for a good CPU cooler? You might want to check this!

Try using a NH-U9B CPU cooler. Here are the reviews i was able to find:

The cooler comes equipped with the necessary tools to attach a 2nd fan but, however, it only has 1 fan. You can choose to get different fans for this cooler, though.
It works best with 2 fans in push-pull configuration. Found several reviews for the fan that comes with the NH-U9B cooler, that can also be sold separately :


NF-B9

Pros

Small enough to fit in narrower cases
Read the reviews and judge for yourself

Cons

Pricey


Personally, i would love to see a TPU review of this CPU cooler + fan and compare it to "the big boys".


@ mods: i'm unsure as where in the forums to post this. If i chose poorly, please move it to the proper place: thank you.
