So I am wanting to build myself a MATX P67/2600k machine. The case is a Lian Li PC-V352, so I don't have much vertical height.

I was thinking about grabbing a Corsair H50, but since Sandy Bridge seems to not benefit all that much from high end cooling I don't really want to spend $70 on a cooling it. Anyone have any other suggestions that would fit? I had a Thermalright AXP-140 in the past and loved it, but it seems to have been discontinued.

Not sure if they still make it but what about the Noctua one that uses a 92mm fan? Might not be enough cooling though.

Wow, I just started putting together a Sandy Bridge setup in a V351B...what are the chances! So far from what I have read, the Scythe Big Shuriken, Scythe Ninja Mini, and Thermalright AXP-140 all fit. There's a huge thread on Hard Forums dedicated to the Lian-Li's V350 series of cases...some good reading in there.

I was thinking about running an H50, but I'm trying to keep the clutter inside the case down to a minimum in order to keep other components as cool as possible.
