if i were u i would get the xp-120 or the zalman 7700cu for your cpu. and for your graphics card, either the nv silencer (Rev.2 nVidia 6) or the zalman VF700-CU. any combin combination of these will give you much better cooling.

Well the tower 120 wont fit in my case, and my case is wider than most - so I would do the measurements. I had about 8mm more space then required when I measured, but it was pushing my case window when installed.

I would go with the brand new Coppper XP-90. Or the XP-120.

The copper xp-90 is awesome, and the xp-120 is awesome, but the 120 is likely a tight fit.
