  1. Hi, I would like to cool my CPU better for playing games. Not that it gets too hot as it is with the stock fan and all, but I don't want to take any chances either since I can play games for hours upon hours sometimes!

    So far, I know that I need to go "tall" as opposed to "wide" so Zalman coolers are out. Any suggestions? My CPU specs are here:

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Theres nothing wrong with the Zalman!

    It has the bonus of a fan speed adjuster, so you can crank up the fan when gaming - if need be - and drop it back when browsing etc

    I know there is nothing wrong with Zalman but I can't use them because they are too "wide" for all that I have inside my case. So I need a cooler that is "tall" as opposed to "wide". That is what I was saying.

    Arctic Cooling Freezer 4 is good, or maybe a XP 90 will fit.
