A8N-E chipset fan speed = 6250 !? - Page 3

post #21 of 24
Thread Starter 
Mmm, I've looked on google and at Thermalright.com but I could not find any HL-05: I guess it's the HR-05 you are talking about.

Also, are you sure that it fits?? Looking at the SLI version it seems to fit no problem but the non-SLI version looks too big to fit in there. I mean if the heatsinker has to go just in the middle of the current chipset fan, then it would touch the zalman would it not? If I have to, it would not be a problem getting the SLI one but still it costs 10euros more that the normal one...

Anyways, I think that you can figure out which one I should buy more than me... ... I'm just worried about the space when I look at the photos.

Yes, HR-05 is the right number. Looking at some of the other chipset coolers available, I think the SLI version is the only one that will not interfere with your Zalman.

I used the SLI version because I know that I will be stepping up to the 8800GTX (future) and I wanted to make sure it was out of the way.

Here is a shot of my A8N-E with the Thermalright installed. You can see it offsets the heatsink to the side which would be out of the way of your Zalman:

Solution 1 - run the fan at 5V by using a red wire from your PSU and a black wire as ground.

Solution 2 - get a passive Zalman NB47J like I did
