Gigabyte P35-DS4 R2 + Zalman Cooler

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys,

I'm looking into buying a new heatsink for my CPU, as my overclocking journey can not go any further until I do. This is the one I have in mind...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118223

My question: If anyone has installed this to a P35-DS4...is this going to be a b*tch? I've heard that you must remove the mobo from the chassis with all lga 775 setups. Unwiring, and rewiring my entire system is not something I would like to do exactly. Especially when my goal is only to pop in a new heatsink. If this is the case, could someone reccommend a cooler that would work better for me? I'm currently running with just the stock intel e6750 heatsink and Arctic Silver paste.

I know Scythes use the stock style hold downs. Still might be pretty hard to get them in when the motherboard is in the case because of the size of the cooler.

What heatsink are you running now?

im using similar mobo as yours... and a zalman 9700led, similar to 9500. no probs. it fits, and youll have to remove the mobo from your chasis in order to mount the bracket.
