Hey Guys after a bit of help!

After reading around, I found that i have a limited selection of CPU coolers that i can bolt to my XFX 790i ultra due to massive northbridge heatpipes/sink

So my question is, regardless of noise, effort, annoying LED's, as i dont really care, which CPU cooler will do the best cooling and most important of all, FIT in this board ?

OC the 9550 I say. Temperature room enough.
