hello all. this friday i'm getting my stuff to build my pc. i bought the Gigabyte GA-MA790 FX am3 mobo. i read allot of reviews that it won't fit big coolers because of the ram dimms. i'm getting pretty big ram modules.... 2 x 2gb OCZ fatal1ty ddr3 1333mhz rams. what cooler will fit, except the zalman (not a big fan of the zalman)?

I got the gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3L, the arctic cooling freezer 7 pro and OCZ Reaper HPC edition which are also big.
The cooler sits over slot 1 of the memory so i put the memory in slots 2 and 4.

If your OCZ Fatalities are the same as these, then they'll fit, rather snuggly, but they'll fit.
Newegg.com - OCZ Fatal1ty Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory (The Official Memory of the Championship Gaming Model OCZ3F13334GK - Desktop Memory
The stock cooler that came with your cpu would be enough. Unless you bought and OEM cpu, or you plan on overclocking.
Here's a few in mind.
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Hyper N 520 RR-920-N520-GP 92mm Sleeve CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER RR-B20-N620-GP 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER GeminII S RR-CCH-PBU1-GP 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks I have one similar to this, only its was made by Asus.
Newegg.com - Thermaltake CL-P0456 140mm CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks
Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & HeatsinksThis is one alot of people buy.
The ram will be a snug fit, like I previously said. But, it will fit.
