Default CPU Cooler Question

so i have this CPU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116196

and this motherboard:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131538

and this is PSU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104953

and this case:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811144026

and im looking for a CPU Cooler, i dont know what to get! all the ones on newegg for socket LGA775 are all rated pretty low by not too many people, and i saw an AWESOME thermaltake thing, but it was only for athlon

also keep in mind im not sure how big my case is, so i added the link if you need to check dimensions. btw this is a computer i have yet to make. so, any ideas on a good CPU heatsink/fan combo or something like that? i saw a Zalman 120mm heatsink with fan... heres link:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118115

will that fit in my case with my mobo and PSU?

and if not, any suggestions on what will, and keep my CPU cold?

the reason i dont want to use the stock is becuase im getting a 3.4ghz cpu, and i dont have an air guide and stuff, though the case has a side 80mm fan, a top blowhole 80mm fan, two front bottom 80mm fans, and a 120mm back fan, so i think that will be enough

anyways, any suggestions?

thanks for any help,
Phate

The case is a standard ATX mid, so im pretty sure the fan you selected would fit.

The fan will fit onto your mobo, as it is not on teh non-compatible list.

Nice choice of fan btw

thanks a lot, but one minor thing

the site you linked was all about socket 478 CPUs, and my socket on my mobo is a socket LGA775, does that make a difference?

Sorry about that.

It's not on the compatible list or the non compatible list... seems like it will work then.

that zalman cooler is pretty good. i'm told it works very efficiently just make sure that the edge of the cooler will clear your ram etc. it should install without much difficulty but apparently the s939 installation is a *****
