Default CPU cooler

I'm looking for a CPU cooler, and I'd like to get something like a Typhoon or something, but they are so BIG. What if it doesn't fit? How can I know if it will fit without buying it, taking it home, and trying to install it, then it probably won't work.

Also, On the side panel of the case, I have this funnel thing, and it appears that if I try to put in a CPU cooler, it will not fit because the funnel will get in the way. Can I remove this? I still want to put a fan it, but...yea you get it...

Yes you can remove the funnel. Get the BigTyphoon or Scythe Ninja.

Okay, done some research and I found the installation guide, but here's one more question. It says this: "fits Intel P4 socket 478, LGA 775, AMD K7, and AMD K8.

What do I have? I have a socket 939 Chaintech mobo, VNF4 Ultra.

That's what they mean by "K8." That's socket's 754, 939, and 940.
