Cooler for Asus p8z77-I deluxe - Page 9

post #81 of 163
it clears without the top fan perfectly, its just that the heatpipes void the first ram slot if the ram has heatspreaders (going to confirm this by cutting it off my new ram) and the heatpipes need to extend past the rear wall of the case (cut a slot for the tips).

Will 100% be verified tonight!

its f=12-3093-123-12-13912-

just spent what felt like 4 hours putting this together.

i was used to shuttle pc pain in the arse but this was crazy... never doing it again

killed a ram stick too when trying to remove the heatspreader but that is just me being a retard...

But yes it fits, clears top fan by about .75CM, lower fan fits JUST (<1mm) from back of case, but the heatpipes reuire a slot in the back of the case.

id be happier but the system is loud as heck because my gfx card's fan now goes straight out the side of the case... oh well, least its faster now..

I was going to use low profile Corsair ram with this board. Is there a direction that you think might work without cutting the back of the case?
Again without the top fan. Do you have photos of your install?
Thanks in advance.

im actually less crabby now,

the quality of the case was much less than i expected for silverstone, but it was what i expected for a $220 specialty case that included a PSU. the PSU connecters and cable length was not thought out (PCIE power connectors could have been right angled maybe? some leads excessively long

The top fan im not a fan of *boom tish*, so im thinking of ditching it and just having the top nocturna fan on. Feels quite cheap anyway, makes wierd noises at low RPM.

Only thing is that if i use the nocturna it wont be a direct sort of feed anymore, unless i mount the nocturna to the top of the case then i lose the filter

Would you guys say that having just the cpu mounted HSF would be enough to get airflow for the VRM and ram all that?


Any other tips to get the heatspreaders off? i busted one stick.. other option is to just cut the crummy heatspreaders with a dremel, but i wouldnt trust my lovely hands with something that dainty.

or i could just use non XMP ram (is ddr3 as easy to push as the new chips are?) if i can get the regular stuff and run the XMP timings that would be sweet!

Thank you so much for the pictures. Looks like its going to be a tight fit for me.
From the photos its difficult to tell how much space there is from the heatpipe bends to the hard drive/power supply area.
In your opinion, does it look like the cooler will be able to fit the opposite way that you've mounted?
post #86 of 163
wont fit that way,

as for north south i think itd fit but you wouldnt be able to run a lower fan.
post #87 of 163
Seems like a tight fit no matter which way its mounted.

Any updates or new photos of your build?

Just bought a Coolermaster 212 EVO for this board and guess what, the backplate hits the circuitry on the rear...

Any similar size and priced coolers with plates that will fit safely - Corsair A50 maybee?

N10248, can you use rubber pads between the backplate and the motherboard? They are probably included in your Coolermaster 212 EVO package and should dramatically decrease the stress on the circuitry.

I actually consider Cooler Master GeminII M4 for the board. I do not know if it fits well but I have seen a photo without any comments at http://vr-zone.com/articles/asus-p8z77-i-deluxe-review-redefining-the-itx-gaming-pc/15357-5.html Has anyone tried it?
