I don't think it's an issue with my mobo but low profile Crucial Ballistix Sport would probably solve this issue (What I am using). Although most of the people having the issue probably already have their memory.

I'm not sure which of the Formula boards that it was, but I had a customer a while back complain that he had to file down one side of the AMD bracket in order to get it to fit on his board. he also couldn't turn the block 90 degrees because the fittings wouldn't clear the heat sinks. You can see in the picture where I marked it for where it fowls the ram slot and the heat sink. The lower left part of the AMD mounting bracket is where he had to file it down.

My Corsair H100 has no problem like that with the AMD bracket. Since I am not installing the H320 myself, but am handing it over to a professional < I don't think he'll like having to file down parts. It is time consuming and must be done with a degree of precision. He will be working on the floor of my solarium, where my computer is located. I am losing my interest for this product if I have to resort to such techniques on a well known motherboard. I expect better from Swiftech on this and will not accept that solution. I only have 2 sticks of ram so the ram slot may not be a problem for me. I think my sticks are in the red ram slots which are slots 2 and 3.
I can see no martkings in your picture. The contrast is too high.

Sorry for duplicate. My mouse click causes this some times.

In talking with Stephen, he says that this is an issue with AMD and Intel sockets due to the way that we have designed a simple method for adapting the mounting assembly. Stephen is considering designing an adapter that will allow for narrower socket mounting, like that used with certain AMD sockets. It will be harder to adapt and will most likely require that the kit be completely drained prior to installing the narrow adapter. Designing and producing this adapter will of course depend on demand for it.

I still think a simple rework of the AMD brackets to allow the pump to be installed 90 degrees with fitting facing top and bottom of the board would solve all these issues. It seems like a small oversight in production of the unit. Intel installation can install in any of the 4 positions where us AMD owns have only 2 positions, both blocking a ram slot and maybe contacting board mounted components.


Would swiftech entertain looking into updating the AMD brackets?

Unfortunately this isn't going to happen. If anything we will make a special bracket for narrow socket boards that will require the complete removal of the stock Intel bracket and thus require the kit to be drained. I was able to find that it's a Formula Z board that's shown in the picture. It doesn't really matter though because the socket area is the same on both boards.

I am kinda of a quite freak aka why I got the R4 but I was curious if it would help noise level to have the fans pointing down opposed to have the pointing up and in pull? Or get new fans to put on them? Will it make much of a difference in performance or sound?

On my sabertooth 990fx I have the ram problem.

Strike 2. I did not want to expand my kit for the forseeable future and looked forward to 3 years of use without refilling. Now having to drain it means refilling every 6 months and worrying about spills. Not at all what I had looked forward to as an owner. I think Gabe has to get back to the drawing board and come up with a solution that is not bastardized. What troubles me in addition is there was no mention of this in the past 2 months threads as far as I know. I have read almost every post in the past 2 months .
