Default Phenom II X4 Cpu Cooler

Everything is running fine now on my new build except the cooler. The one I ordered said phenom on it, and it didn't fit onto my mobo. The holes were too close together for the stand and you couldn't adjust them. So I'm going to send it back and order a new one.

Just want to make sure the new on will work though. I've got this mobo I think, the combo deal with the x4 940 deneb when I bought it. Newegg.ca - BIOSTAR TFORCE TA790GX 128M AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards



Thinking about getting this cooler, seen it mentioned in a lot of places and nothing but good reviews.
Newegg.ca - XIGMATEK Dark Knight-S1283V 120mm Long Life Bearing CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks


Edit: Right now my cpu's idle at about 35-40c and goes up to 47c or so playing crysis on gamer. Wondering if thats normal or high or what?

Thanks
Ryan

It's not high, but have you overclocked yet?

This one is cheaper, and it comes with thermal compound. It stacks up pretty well against the Dark Knight, especially for the cost.

Those temps are fine, but if you want to overclock or just like to have a cool cpu then the Core Contact is a good choice..

Fair enough. I'm only on my stock hsf until my new one gets here, but it's definitely limiting.

Not only that but they usually look limiting too, just makes the inside of your computer look less aesthetically pleasing.
