Didn't have time to fiddle with voltages, so running at default.. but Wall, is it unstable even at default voltage? can you lower it at all without instability?
Raytry, It works relatively well with the Schythe Mugen 3, on the A75 board I could just barely get the fan between the CPU and hard drives, but there was only 1mm between the fan blades and a 90angle Sata connector.. Now with the A85 it hits the HDD cages, so I opted for the very non optimal solution with the fan between CPU and case fan.. I would defenitely go for something more like a TRUE120 in thickness. At any rate I wouldn't go for any broader than 11cm including fan.
Keep in mind that the Schythe Mugen is extremely over performing in this case, you'll land at fairly low CPU temps even without a fan, and OCing the CPU to a point where you'll get real use of the heat sink will probably lower the life time of the MB significantly..
Also with a tower cooler there is no airflow down on the SB and vrms, so I ghettomodded in a 40mm fan. With this and default clock SB feels cool.
You might want to check for a cooler with better compatibility with rams, or use rams without a heat sink, so you dont have to modify your heatsinks as I did.
If you haven't bought PSU yet I would strongly recommend going for a shorter PSU, preferably semi modular. In my case I don't use a graphics card, but I have tried adding a card for the heck of it, and the main ATX cable put lots of pressure on the card, since its too close.
(From start to finish quite ugly solutions to everything, and poor cable management..)
EDIT: Tell me if there is some part you want me to measure or take a picture of. Also, forgot to mention I had to modify the backplate not to put pressure on an IC on the back of the MB.. this will probably be a problem with most coolers that use backplates, especially if they use the same backplate for intel boards too.Edited by nilssab - 7/5/13 at 10:05am
