  1. Can anyone recommend a good CPU cooler(Air) to pair with an Intel Core i7-2600K CPU, Asus Sabertooth P67 Rev3 Intel P67 Express Socket 1155 Motherboard and 8Gb (2x4Gb) Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1866C9. Im worried about the cooler clearing the memory and the southbridge? My budgets around £40-£50.

    Not keen on the H50 ?

    If you're looking for a tower cooler then I'd look at the Thermalright Archon (£49)- it will clear the memory modules and fit the socket area. It also happens to one of the best air coolers you can buy.The only downside could be the height of the cooler (170mm) which may be a little too tall for your chassis. The Prolimatech Armageddon (£41) is in a similar vein, although it's cooling ability is a little less.
