I have this cooler I plan to use along with an Antec 900 case and will not be overclocking at this time. :)

Ok well good you'll keep things at stock speeds as these Haswell's get a wee bit hot when pushed some.

Well, I see I've learned something else new, I sure do appreciate all the skilled advice I get on this forum!

This costs a little more and if you case will allow for its height, I think it would be better. I have a couple of these too and tried it on a Haswell and keeps it cool at stock.

It seems I remember someone else suggesting that cooler I'll have to check into that! :)

I have the same fan on a PentiumD-3.0GHz OC to 3.6GHz. Easy to mount, no motherboard removal & twist clips for the base only. Heat exchanger is screwed to the base.
Temp stays around 30degC & never gets over 40, even with 100% cpu useage.
