My cpu is running near borderline temp since I did some overclocking so I am going to invest in a new heatsink.

Problem: due to cramped space I can not install anything wider than the default one. So it must be taller. To save me searching through pages of specifications I would like an opinion or two on a suitable model.

Please no suggestions on water cooling.

M/B, Asus P5B-E
CPU Intel X6800. Now running at 3.8

Thanks,

The space thing does make it a little difficult. Would you be able to post a picture of the innards of the case?

Fair enough.

Gigabyte made a '3D Rocket' series a while back...

Here (http://www.c1com.co.nz/shop/step1.php?number=7159) is a link, it may still be a little on the big side though. :p
