So you are looking for an AMD cooler for a mid-tower case. Can you measure from the motherboard to where the inside of the case door would be, so we can know how tall of a cooler will fit inside? we don't want to suggest one and then it doesn't fit.

Need 158mm for this one. If the case is 7.25 inchs wide, it will probable fit. Without a door fan on the case, anything less nope.

Okay so i calculated th height(i.e, from the processor to the side panel w/o the 80mm fan which i use) which is 165mm and with fan it may be 155 or 160mm
so thats abt it..

I'd recommend the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus. Great cooler and it's very cheap.
Intel Core i5-3570K @ 4.2Ghz @ 1.16V (CPU-Z + LinX)
Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H F14 BIOS
ASUS GTX 460 768MB @ 800/1950
Kingston HyperX DDR3 8GB @ DDR-1333
Corsair AX750
Crucial M4 128GB
Western Digital Black 1TB
Cooler Master Hyper 212+ EVO
BenQ E2420HD

the freezer64 is crap, I don't know why its recommended so often.

I'll second the vote for cooler master 212 and add in the Xigmatek HDT-RS1283. Both of those coolers are 159mm though so it may be a close fit with that fan.

If you need something lower profile the coolermaster gemini ii s is under 90mm tall and is close in performance to the best of the tower coolers.
