Mini ITX CPU Cooler - Page 7

Touching should not be a problem as long as the base sets flat on the CPU.
Easy way to check is mount the cooler with time, take it off and look at the print.

thanks Doyll, will give it another try tonight

Sorry to bother you but am curious if it worked or not.

Hi doyll,
I couldn't get it to fit properly, if you look at the photo, there's a gap between the cpu and the cooler, because of the wifi module and the ram is being pushed tiltied already,
Not sure how others get it to fit but I installed a cryorig c7 instead, and it fits without any fuzz. But I would assume the thermal take would probably preform better given its size.

[ThermalrihtB]RIGHT[/B] Thermaltake is the opposite of Thermalright Take others' designs and sell them, not do it right by researching and develoiping new designs.

C7 is a good little cooler. I have used both, but the time and system differences are such I'm can't say how much difference there is. C7 is 4 pipe versus 6 pipe, but the biggest problem I have with C7 is fan can only be mounted to push air in, and this generally results in an airflow loop of cooling re-using it's own heated exhaust air.

Sorry if I posted this to you before. I do it often and forget to whom it was. blushsmiley.gif

I need to contact Cryorig and try getting an extra fan to modify into a pull fan. Won't be easy. Will have to cut up one fan housing to get fan and motor supports, then cut another for housing and then glue one onto other. End result should look something like this.

hey thanks for your detail reply, my CPU temp is going at 50 degree when idle, not sure if that's correct, but seems like modifying the cooler fan is out of my league, I might consider get the Noctua fan later.

50c is extremely hot for idle temperature. devil.gif I expect my systems to be below 30c at idle.
If your case has a side vent directly above the cooler fan, you could make a duct from fan to panel so it is only moving air to/form cooler in that duct. This keeps the heated and cool air separated. wink.gif

If you have room for a 25mm thick fan they will move more air. Just be sure you have 30mm or more above fan for airflow to move away / to fan.

I'm having the exact same problem as bigjimmy had. I'm using an Asus Z170i Pro Gaming and G.Skill Ripjaws V RAM, and the AXP-100 Muscle just won't fit in any direction. I'm now wondering if I should return the cooler and get a new one (C7 for example) or just get some lower profile RAM? I originally didn't really think about the height of my RAM as I was using a micro-atx setup before moving onto itx. Earlier in this thread I saw someone using the same setup with Corsair Vengeance RAM, which seem to be around 34mm (or 31mm, not sure). However in my country Kingston HyperX Fury (34.25mm) is noticeably cheaper especially if I decide to go from 8GB to 16GB. It seems that in the diagrams the clearance from the bottom of the cooler to the part making contact with the RAM stick is however around 27.15mm (if I'm checking correctly). I'm wondering if there is any way to calculate this, i.e do the RAM sticks sit lower than the CPU?

Surface of motherboard is 8mm below top of CPU. RAM socket raised RAM 3mm above surface of motherboard.

Thanks for the reply. I'm just wondering why it seems to be so incredibly hard to find the dimensions of the mentioned RAM sticks even from the manufacturers' datasheets. So it seems that Corsair LPX does fit, but there's contradictory info, some sites say the sticks are 31mm, and another one says 1.35 (34.3mm). Kingston press release says HyperX Fury sticks are 34.24mm.

Perhabs I'm overthinking this? rolleyes.gif
