Cooler for Asus p8z77-I deluxe - Page 10

post #91 of 163
I am planning a build with this board in the Fractal Design Node 304 when it comes out later this month. Link to Case info: http://www.fractal-design.com/?view=product&prod=94

It accomodates up to a 165mm tower heatsink -- is there any that fit this board correctly? It seems the backplates are the biggest problems. I have a drill and some tin snips and I'm not afraid to use them.

The Coolermaster 212 would be at a nice price, but the previous poster that tried didn't seem to find a way to make it work so I'm Guessing thats out....


I see the Noctua NH-D14 fits, but I am looking for alternative (hopefully cheaper ones!). However, this would definitely work in my case, and I could use the rear fan to replace the case's exhaust.


Alternately, I was also wondering if the Scythe Big Shuriken 2 would clear the rear exhaust fan.

Here is a previous picture by DaddyBoy in this thread showing the heatpipes going towards the back of the board: http://cdn.overclock.net/1/1a/600x450px-LL-1a48af0d_IMG_2328.jpeg

I just tried an Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe with a huge Scythe Ninja 3 rev B cooler which is 16cm tall and it perfectly fits. Here are some photos without the fan:

Thats PERFECT! I thought it was out because of its huge backplate but I am glad to see that it works!

The Ninja 3 Rev B has the same backplate as the Big Shuriken 2 Rev B, on which Daddyboy had to make an extra hole not to loose one of the pin of the chipset heatsink. But that is not necessary you only need to rotate the backplate and that will do it smile.gif

Does anyone know if a Coolermaster V8 will fit on this board?
post #97 of 163
yes, I have gotten the CM V8 to fit on the board. However, I just tried a CM GeminII S524, and unfortunately the backplate is hindered on one corner by a component, likely a capacitor. You can mount it, but you better not tighten that corner too much!

This makes me wonder why the V8 was not an issue, as I would think that the backplates would be similar...hmmmm...

Thank you for the reply! I don't know why but I really want the V8 so this is good news.

I will check it out tonight again, just to be sure that there is no blockage on the bottom. I no longer have it installed, as shown in the picture, as I went with a H50 instead. Just be very careful when you install the V8, as there is no way to tell which direction the air flows! It's not listed on the cooler itself, nor is it in the manual. Air flow right to left,when looking down at the top of the cooler where you can read the logo properly.

UPDATE: So I checked out the various CM mounting brackets (GenimII S524, M8 and V8). THey are all identical. Evidently when I built the system with the V8 mounted, I must have taken care of the resistor/capacitor on the back of the board.
