Yes... will sell.

Just took measurements and there is close to 125mm clearance from the head of CPU and the PS so anything taller won't fit depending on the overall depth of the heatsink.

Again this is because of the CPU placement on the motherboard, being more centered than with some other motherboards where it is located closer to the edge, thus clearing the PS.

Yeah before I decided to go custom loop, I researched the crap out of what heatsink to use. Provided your ram clears, I would check the Noctua C-style heatsinks.

I have done a lot of research lately, for under 120mm coolers.

The Noctua NH-U9B is by the way under 125mm, so you would be able to use it. I had to down the search under 120mm, so ended up with the C stylers, where the best choice (IMHO) was the Scythe Rasetsu, where i took off the 120mm fan, so its height fits under 118mm. And i will simply push-pull it with some fans from the side, since its big enough smile.gifpic

I'd definitely by it locally if I could- I have a Microcenter across the street from work but thry don't carry it yet. Glad to hear no one reporting same drive issue as the Rampage Gene series.

Silverstone FT03 is a popular choice providing you are not gonna watercool your gpu. Can fit a H70 at the back.

Ok just spent 2 full hours for what coud fit there...

Zalman CNPS7X - new (1 review only) and direct pipe touch but I'm not sure about the space between pipes on CPU, the A70 was much better (smaller) in this regards. Perf looks good though. Also, would have to double check for the round frame, very close to touch rads around CPU..

CNPS9500A - old but looks to be giving good perf. Mounting bracket and clip is weird. Fan is the loudest of those 3 but I haven't heard it myself so...

NH-U9B SE2 - very old but seems to be doing good in many review. Best mounting clip of them all. Wish it was copper but oh well...

I think I will go with the Noctua... better fans, will probably use only one but having a spare is good and it use the best mounting system.

Agreed. The Define series is pretty good for cable management.
Here's a pic of my R3 even though it isn't mATX.

That's the little sucker I chose for my Rig, seems to have been a good choice so far, but I haven't attempted any OC'ing or real system tweaking yet. redface.gif
