Artic Frezzer 64 is a reasonably priced HSFwith great cooling.. The fan draws air to the rear fan and operates less than 1 sone iiirc.

It is easy to fit without taking out the mobo.

The fan however, does cover the dimm slots but that it isn't a problem becuase the fan is coupled on with "easy-clips" (no screws) so the fan can be easily removed with out taking off the heatsink. This al helps draw heat away from the memory modules too.

edit - i've just noticed you have the extreme memory with the bells and fairly lights.. that maybe a problems.. checks...

basically, im replacing my ballistix which just fitted under the heatsink.

ive got to choose between ocz or corsair stuff, the ocz would be fine, but they arent in stock so i may have to go for the corsair and replace my heatsink, hence the question :)

ideally, the ocz will be in stock soon :D
