I like the corsair H70. It works great. The cheaper model is the H50.

Yes. I have the Corsair H50. does a great job and keeps the CPU heat almost entirely out of the case and doesn't have any fit or blocking issues.
I did some 'work' on the back of my case with a drill to open up more venting..the radiator is a little bigger than the standard 120cm fan cutout. It was worth it. Dropped the temp another 8 degrees F
2 fans in a push/pull config dropped another 12 degrees
Overclocked cpu idles at 100 F and didnt get over 148 the other day when it was 90 in here and BOINC was going full bore.

Solarstarshines, I am not familar with the cooler Master HSF you mentioned, but am sure if the Thermaltake Frio will fit in your case, most any HSF will fit. Fry's dosent show any detailed info that I could find. The Frio is 165mm tall (6.7" approx.). That is one of the larger ones you will find. Everyone has their opinions as to which ones are best, but you are going to be the one to decide. Just do your homework before you do.

Why do you want a different cooler? Do you have a heat problem, are you going to begin significant overclocking soon? It's hard to make a recommendation if we aren't aware of the reason for making a change.

Zalman is a brand I trust and recommend. Thermaltake is a good brand, but I haven't used their coolers before.

I have Newegg.com - Enzotech Extreme-X Rev.A 120mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler it allows mounting in different postitions. I have it so the fan blows over my RAM sticks.
