Ok, so I have a new I5-2500K Sandy Bridge CPU. This is what I have put together.

Rosewill REDBONE Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Case
Asus P8H61-M LE/CSM (Rev. 3) Micro ATX Motherboard
Crucial Ballistix DDR3 1333 1.5v (2x 4GB)
Gigabyte GTX550 Ti Video Card
Along with the i5-2500K CPU

I'm just curious, with everything put together, what kind of Aftermarket Heatsink can I use that will fit?
I don't have tall ram.

I'm confused about how the dimensions work on a heatsink. IE which way L is compared to W.

Any suggestions?
