Windows 7: How do i find a CPU Cooler that fits to my system?

@shimshom re Dark Rock

I've got a Dark Rock cooler on an o/c 2600K, and while it's a efficient cooler, it's a massive bit of kit - too tall for a standard case (I have an Antec 300 for that pc). Also, depending on the mobo, it can cover some of the RAM, making routine maintenance a hassle. The weight of the DR means you have to be careful during installation as well. I now use a Seidon 120V water cooler on my new builds - still needs a large-ish case for the 120mm rad/fan.

If the OP is not overclocking, maybe he just needs new thermal paste.

jimkromann I would like to help you but I need more information.

***Fill in your System Specs completely.
Look at my System Specs in lower left of this post and it should give you a idea how to fill them in.

***Other than your complete specs I will need to know what you are going to use the computer for.
***How much money you are willing and able to spend.

All computer cooling starts with the case (tower) and it's ability to circulate air and remove hot air.

What programs are you monitoring your cpu and gpu temps?

I have a self built water cooling system. If the case was unable to remove the hot air it would of been a waste of money. Plus I would have a heat problem with the cpu, gpu, motherboard ect.

If you supply the needed information I will be happy to give guidance.

(Not sure where this actually fits)
So this morning my computer froze, forcing me to force a shutdown/reboot. When I turned it back on, it showed the attached pics. I have no idea what it means or anything. All I know is there's dollar signs in that gibberish, and that makes it important.
