Thermaltake Big Typhoon or Scythe Ninja. I can confirm the ninja fits on the ultra-d, as I have one It's not as well known as the BT, but on xtremesystems the people who have it report temps exactly the same and even 1-2c cooler than the BT, and it's cheaper to boot.

I got the zalman 9500 and that DFI board. It was a toss up between the zalman and the ninja.

Actually the zalman is not all that it was hyped up to be, sure, it's all copper, and looks really nice, and it's quiet, but it is beaten by the thermaltake big typhoon, and if the ninja beats the typhoon by 1c, and it's cheaper...

you have to get a seperate fan for it however it dosn't come with one.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835106061

Yes, that will fit. Here is the scythe ninja for comparison:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185122
It does basicly exactly the same as the BT, and it's $10 cheaper, but you have to get a fan to go with it, so that comes out to basicly the same price. You can toss between the two. They will both fit and perform the same.

Hmm I was going to get an XP-90, but I'd rather not have a huge piece of metal hanging off like that or the ninja... I'd like to go with something like the Blu Orb II

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835106069

Anyone have objections to that?

will be doing some mild overclocks to an opty 170 (or 4200 if I can't get it)

I say, go with the ninja. I got it and its a beast, but I've heard great things about it. So go with that and a high speed panaflow fan. Just my 2 cents.

Ive got the TT Copper tower 112. 2 Vantec tornadoes strapped to it and i dont think those come CLOSE to that. Bit pricey though, and loud lol.
