I am getting the ASUS Rampage IV mobo with the 3930 intel chip and will have the HAF-X so it will have enough room for any heatsink. I want the best heatsink that wont interfere with the RAM. Thanks for any advice.

The best air cooler you can get is the Noctua NH-D14 SE2011, it is a huge cpu cooler but it competes well with the Cosair H series. One note is, if you have Corsair ram, your likely to have trouble putting it on, here is list of compatible ram that the cooler will fit with.

Personally I use only the stock heat sinks (unless I will be overclocking(OC)) Also it would take a lot of benchmarks and other statistics before I would say that one heatsink is "better" than another. Most warentee's are void with a third party heat sink so I would be careful before you make your final decision.

Also after reading some newegg reviews this thing is freaking huge, so make sure you have the room for it in your case aswell.

Thanks for the response. The cpu i am going to get does not come with a stock heatsink so I need to get a third party one. And i will have the HAF-X case which is big enough to be a guest house so i dont think room will be an issue
