Just got this mobo planning on dropping in a FX-8320e as it keeps my build within my budget. Going to air cool inside a thermaltake vr3 black amd edition case. Anyone have any thoughts on a good air cooler that will fit and keep everything cool?

Nevermind found one that will help not only keep the CPU cool but also the chipset and VRM's and that is the Coolermaster GeminII s524 V 2.0. Awesome heatsink just change the stock fan on it as it "sucks" but not in a good way! Oh and I am using a FX-8320e by the way and it works great with this motherboard!
