Fan for a 680i Striker Extreme

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just switched to an ASUS 680i Striker Extreme and my old SilverStone NT06's back bracket doesn't fit on the board properly (all those heat sinks have big spikes on the back of the board that get in the way)

Can anyone reccomend a good cpu cooler that definately fits on this board and has good cooling to the surrounding heatsinks too?

One that I could get from scan.co.uk would be nice but not necessary, as would a 4 pin connector to the motherboard

A Big Typhoon VX should do the trick. I don't see it at the website you listed though.

The VX model mounts without a backplate and pushes air toward the motherboard.

So I take it I just need any that uses those 4 giant spikes (that make the motherboard give out big, painful cracking noises as you push it on) as on the C2D stock fan?

I don't know why but scan.co.uk doesn't seem that good for cpu heatsinks and fans, though for most things it gets stuff a few days before everyone else, the delivery is very fast, cheap and reliable (£10 next buisness day for an entire computer in parts, spanning 5 or 6 delivery boxes) and even if items are out of stock they are usually back in stock the next day. The problem is, usually if scan doesn't have it in 1 way or another, you have to go to some weird obscure shop (or dabs, which is ok..ish) to get it in the UK.

Do you have any others I can look at for some broader comparison?

Take a look at Overclockers Uk as they have a big selection. The Tuniq Tower should easily fit on your board.

The Tuniq does fit although it is a PITA to put on
