TRUE clearence on MSI P6N SLI MoBo

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm checking out the TRUE for my computer and I'm not sure whether that think will fit - alteast so that i can point the fan out the back



that north bridge i think is in the way....



in this pic you can see how it goes over the NB somewhat - but the top right one gives me hope that it may fite

anyone know for a fact whether its too big or not???

Are any of those pictures of YOUR computer? Check the dimensions of the cooler and your case and your other hardware.

And while you are at it, install Firefox and turn on the spell checker

yeah, the top one is mine with the blue lights

Oh... sry i spelled "thing" wrong

I read somewhere the TRUE fins start at about 4.5cm up from the base, and my northbridge is less than 4cm tall - I just cant tell how far out the heat pipes go
-those are what I'm thinking will hit
