Default cpu HSF

hello all once again

i've got a bit of a problem, yesterday i installed my mobo into my case so i could see the hight from the cpu to the case side

it came to 160mm just outside the case so with the side on it will be slightlyless due to the case having foam on the panel (its ment to muffle the internal fan noise), i'm not going to be able to put a true in because of this so i need some suggestions on different ones

the cpu is a Q6600 which is going to be overclocked, taking the foam off is not a option due to the fact i want it to be quiet as possible, the case is a nexus caterpillar, price is not set just any will do ( within reason )

thanks in advance

The Thermaltake Big Typhoon VX Heatsink Fan looks to be a decent one. Granted this source is a year old, but perhaps there is a newer model of this same heatsink fan. It looks to be only 103mm tall, so it should atleast fit into your case. I would look into this as atleast a possibility.

If I was helpful, please click the icon on the left hand side of this message that looks like a check mark Thanks!
