each of those coolers is pretty large, so make sure that you have enough space to fit one before you order it.
the thing that concerns me is that the board you said you had is a propriatary board (aka one that came with a pre-built PC). If thats the case, then almost 100% of the time the bios is locked, and you wont be able to overclock, which would kinda defeat the purpose of getting the cooler.
well, i got clockgen to work, and my cpu is running stable at 2.0ghz at 46c - 100% load running orthos now.
