Heatsink recommendation for GA-MA785G-UD3H AM2

Postposted on Wed Aug 25, 2010 5:55 pm

I want get something that takes a 120mm fan and does not eat up any RAM slot and has enough clearance for RAM.

I was looking at Xigmatek hdt-s1283 and Noctua NH-C12P looks like both of then the affect RAM slots in default installation. Can Xigmatek S1283 be aligned so that the fan is parallel to the RAM slots like for typical LGA775 install?.

If anyone wants to look at the motherboad pic here it is:

you need to consider price and your OC goals
get a hyper 212+ or a thermaltake Frio
they shouldnt block any ram slots

Thanks for that I will take a look at those heatsinks.
I want to go with a 120mm fan to keep it quite and I am not going OC at all.
