Need help finding a good CPU heatsink.

Alright, so the title basically says it all. I want to get a good heatsink and fan for my CPU, my current motherboard is this: GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM3+ - GA-78LMT-S2 (rev. 1.1) and my current CPU is this: AMD FX-6100 Zambezi 3.3GHz Socket AM3+ 95W Six-Core Desktop Processor FD6100WMGUSBX - Newegg.com


I want a really good heatsink and such that will keep my CPU at a good temperature and hopefully fit inside my case which is this: Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Newegg.com

need any more info just let me know

Unless you are doing some extreme overclocking, this is the best bang for the buck: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

Here is the product page: Product Page Looks to be about 6.3" tall

I've had (still have on a shelf) two Hyper212+ coolers, and now use an Evo. They are quiet, easy to install, and work very well.

lol the shipping would be about 15.00 bucks or a little cheaper I mailed a PSU OFF in my same state for that much so it shouldn't be more then that it goes by weight so it could even cost 5 bucks

you would be a fool not to take Deacon up on that just saying lol

I used to have a Rosewill Challanger, and I suggest you measure. I don't believe a Hyper212+ will fit. I think you don't have the clearance. I ended up with a Cooler master TX3. As I recall, it is about 1.5" shorter than the 212. The 212 is a better Heatsink, but I don't believe it will fit. Either that or one of the closed loop water coolers.
