The H50 is $80.00, and your case is 7.28" in width.

Alternatives:
Tuniq 120 Extreme, $54.99. It's only 150mm in height, 6.18". That would easily clear your case. Tuniq 120 Extreme CPU Cooler: CrazyPC Computers

Scythe Yasya, at $44.99 is about half the price of the H50, and is only 149mm, 5.87". Scythe Yasya CPU Cooler SCYS-1000: CrazyPC Computers

Really, your biggest issue is getting rid of the stock cooler, along with the stock thermal pad/paste. Whichever way you go, H50 or these air solutions, you'll notice a significant drop in temps.
Don't move your pc if you do use these unless you take off the heatsink.

*sigh*

If by that you mean, don't box up your machine and ship it somewhere via UPS, then yeah sure, take off the heatsink... but otherwise, this is just more nonsense.

With 848 grams hanging off you mb, great care should be taken to move it across a room.

They have these nifty little things called back plates these days; perhaps you've heard of them? No longer does the heatsink attach to the socket and the socket only.

Besides, one should take care moving his or her PC across the room regardless of whether or not a large heatsink is installed, right? Unless you're suggesting that a "selling point" of the H50 is that you're now free to toss your machine about the room without fear of any internal damage...

884 grams is way over any motherboards max weight specification. Don't be an ***hat.

Perhaps before you go any further, you might want to brush up on these? https://www.sevenforums.com/general-d...ease-read.html

I'd respond to your comment, but, like other posts of yours in this thread, it's misleading. Once again you've omitted very relevant information in order to attempt to make an argument. "way better than air", only if you ignore all the air coolers that are better. "way over any motherboard max weight spec", only if you ignore the backplate in place.

Seriously, if you can't make an honest argument, why bother?

Thanks for all the input guys. I'm going to go away and have a wee bit of a think. I'm still leaning toward the H50. But I'll post back once I get it sorted.

kylehimself,

Well looks like you got a couple of points of view.

The decision is ultimately yours, of coarse.

Since you asked for alternate air cooling ideas, I have the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus, it's been working very well.
It's compatible with your AMD Phenom II X4.

Idle temps are 29c, running Prime95 was at 59c.
Dimensions 120 x 79.7 x 158.5 mm (L x W x H)
It's not small, you would need to measure your case.

Review from Tom's Hardware, rated it highest on cooling value.
It's a very good air cooler for a good price.

In the US it's $29, you'll have to check for availability and price in your area.

Someday I'll probably get a water cooler, but the thought of having water pumped around my computer case makes me shiver.

I'm sure you will be happy with whatever you get, it will be better than stock coolers.

Good luck, let us know what you decide.

So I'm looking into another cooler and case. For the case, I was wanting something with a lot of airflow, side window, 140mm fan support, USB3, and support for a dual 120 or 140mm Rad. For the cooler I was looking into the corsair h105 or 110. Ideas?
