ASUS sabertooth 990FX CPU Cooler Positioning - Page 2

No, you cannot. I've even been sent different screw set in different sizes from Zigmatek them selves & none of them worked. The one i ordered was the updated version to the one you suggested. The problem isn't the crossbar kit. The base plate on my Cooler Master TPC-812 is too thick. I would either have to get a different cooler or scrap the whole air cooled idea and go liquid. I may just go with Corsairs H100 cooler. wink.gif

Not sure if you tried, or if the heat pipes are too wide, but the coolermaster bracket should be able to fit around the heatpipes.

If you put the bracket in the heatsink like so (the red dots represent where the heatpipes are), you should be able to mount it.

It's so little!

The Cooler Master TPC-812 uses the Vapor Chamber technology. There isn't enough space for the bracket to open up wider. Which is why i wanted to get a crossbar system to mount the cooler to vent in a push, pull or push + pull configuration in a East + West (right to left) direction instead of the South to North direction (down and up). I'm using the ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX board in a Corsair 600T SE case. As you can see the Vapor coil is in the way not to mention the base plate is too thick / tall to use the Xigmatek Crossbar ACK-U01. Although the Xigmatek crossbar will work with any other cooler. However, if you read closely, this crossbar WILL NOT WORK with the CM TPC-812 cooler.

Trust me, I've done my homework and had to deal with this problem first hand. Take a look at the vapor coil link and you'll see what i'm talking about.

I was trying to look for pictures, but most of the pictures I found are on Intel builds.

From the pictures, it looks like a really thick 212evo mounting. I will stop by my local Frys and take a look tomorrow. I think I have a few spare AMD mounts laying around from when I had a Copper True and needed something stronger than the plastic Xigmatek crossbow mount.

I've seen the crossbow mounting system, def not going to work with my cooler. I would have to make a custom crossbar and for the price of one of those, i minus well just buy a new cooler and use the crossbar mount. For aal this trouble, im just getting an RMA for my cooler, the crossbar and just going to get the CM H100 and run Corsair Air Series SP120 High Performance Edition High Static Pressure 120mm Fan.
