CPU cooler for rig, no Hyper 212 plz

Go to solution Solved by flibberdipper,

Get the Hyper TX3. I think it will fit, and it does perform pretty damn good for a little cooler.

I've been using the stock intel fan for quite awhile now and it's getting kinda noisy so I wanna replace it.

Before you go around suggesting Hyper 212X, my case only allows CPU coolers up to 155mm while the Hyper 212X is 158mm. So that's clearly out...
I've been looking at the GeminII M4 but I have a concern. Will the cooler block the RAM slots on my MATX board (GA-B75M)? I'm using the Gskill RipjawsX RAM.

The other two possible candidates are Hyper TX3 EVO (quite cheap but 92mm fan) and maybe even the Seidon 120V. Any other good alternatives?

It's the cheapest among the 3 so I was thinking of going for it, just looking if there are better alternatives.
