I recently bought a phenom II 965 for my crosshair III, and am having 1 heck of a time finding a cpu cooler that will fit on the crosshair...

I bought the noctua cooler but the mounting kit only allows it to face upwards towards the top, and the sides go about an inch over both DIMM slots, so it wont fit. Ive looked online and i cant for the life of me find one that will fit this wacky motherboard. The stock cooler isnt doing very good.. i had to drop the fan to 3000 RPM's because at the max (5900) it was ear piercing. My temps atm are 41 celcius idle and up to 57 celcius while playing games. Im not an expert with cpu temps but this seems really high even if the max temp is 65 celcius.. so i really want an aftermarket solution.

Price isnt a problem, but if u guys could please link some size friendly AM3 socket coolers i would love you forever. Thanks ^^
