AMD Phenom X6 1055T Low Profile Cooler?
I'm building a PC, having a problem with getting a decent cooler to fit in the case, it has a Arctic 7 Rev 2 cooler with it BUT this will not fit in the case with the side panel fitted as there is a huge 22cm fan on the side panel... trying to decide on a decent ertically mounted fan that doesn't obstruct the RAM slots as the Arctic 7 covers the first ram too...

Processor: AMD Phenom X6 1055T
Motherboard: ASUS M4A88T-V EVO/USB3
Case: INWIN "Griffin"
GFX: Saphire 5770 Vapor-X
