BT on a P5B

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Will a big typhoon fit on a normal asus P5B motherboard, I don't mean the socket, I mean will the motherboard have enough space for it?? Im planning on getting one but not sure if it will fit or not. If it does fit is there a possibility that it would break the motherboard with its weight??Cause my friend tells me that the BT weights a lot.

Honestly if you are careful, you have nothing to worry about when it comes to breaking your mobo. They wouldn't put a cooler on the market that is so heavy it breaks PCB. lol
From what I can see it does fit, but you might want to get a second opinion just in case.

I've got big typhoon on the P5W-DH and I had to use some alternate skinny mounting clips they provide.

From mounting mine, there clearance from the motherboard to the base of the actual heat sink is pretty huge, so, I don't think anything could get in the way.

the skiny mounting bracket I had to use (provided, with instructions) worked like a charm and doesn't stick out past the mounting holes hardly at all. Maybe an eighth of an inch.

Good luck, I'm happy with mine.

PS - the weight isn't a big deal. with the added backer for the mount it seems to distribute the weight well over the 4 mount holes and the area in between it. Moving things around to get it into the case, I saw zero flexing of the board.
