I read through this bad boy: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2647

I have a very basic idea of what L/W/H to look for etc. but I was just wondering if there is a list(besides the one at the bottom of the previously linked page) of aftermarket heat sinks that will fit.

The one I was particularly looking at was the: http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Hyp ... 470&sr=1-1

But I believe that bad boy is way too big, is there anything comparable in price and in efficiency that I can use on the stock mobo without making modifications?

Thanks for your time.

This will just fit with a bit of room to spare in the 630i case using a P67 mobo--but fit it does! A number of us Sandy Bridge users will attest to that. :) To quote Stevenlgts (who did the leg work and measured it with some play dough):

"The clearance between the top of the cooler and the case is 5/16."

The CM Hyper 212 Plus does a solid job of cooling (backed up with numerous great reviews on newegg.com).

If you know what the clearance measurements are for fitment of the cooler, just google some reviews on the latest heatsinks and check their dimensions to see if it will fit. At the same time, you can get professional reviews comparing the heatsinks to one another.

Since you're using the stock mobo, I will recommend that you use this... XIGMATEK LOKI SD963
