    CPU cooler and Antec 900

    Hi folks,
    I have an Antec 900 case housing an Asus P5K-E WiFi board and running a Q6600, my question is which cooler will fit my case ?, I wont be doing extreme overclocking (maybe up to 3.0GHZ) and would like it to be fairly quiet.
    Thanks in advance

    Scythe Ninja is very good and is super quiet, I can't hear it in my antec p182.

    Or the Thermalright ultima90 and you buy a fan seperately, scythe S-FLEX 1200 maybe.

    thermalright ultra and extreme 120 will fit but you wont be able to use a 120mm side window fan if you have that.

    My scythe mine fitts my antec 900 fine, keeps the CPU cool at low revs as well- so nice and quiet.

    Also, try turning the case fans down to slow, case is cool and quiet.

    Re: CPU cooler and Antec 900

    I have an Antec 900 with a Q6600 and am using the Thermaltake Big Typ 120 VX. It is super silent and infact the fan rarely even bothers to spin whilst keeping my Q6600 at 35degrees.

    Thanks guys, I was looking at the scythe and thermaltake coolers. Looks like I'll have to just plump for one of them.
