    Thanks for everyones contributions, it is turning into a comprehensive list

    Agreed, it was the nature of my build to need to know just the heatsink height (exclusive of fan). I have now updated the original post to make this a bit clearer, and also fill out some missing details.

    I wonder how that Zalman that Dschijn posted stacks up against the Gelid Slim Silence? Same height.

    Should be better, because its using copper, heatpipes and a larger fan. But 1500rpm at low speed are still too noisy.

    I am trying to find one for my PH877-I board, its running hot on the stock Intel cooler. I have tried 2 so far and both hit the ram and won't fit.

    I am thinking of trying the Phanteks PH-TC90LS but don't see many people using it.

    The Phanteks has very good specification (TDP). If you are worried about size, the Dynatron is slightly smaller and has a similar design. Alternately get one that is raised above the motherboard (heatpipes) which may give the clearance needed.

    Note: I have added the Phanteks, and Dynatron to the original Post.
