As long as the ram is of normal hight it should work just fine.
It is a good cooler also.

To gr8sho:
I understand how the service will start up. The issue is that the PMT service does start, but the settings aren't applied (or are getting overridden). A simple service restart once windows is booted far enough for me to interact with it gets the settings applied, but I'd like things a bit more automated. Any ideas?

I will share my experience with HS/fan that require you to remove the AMD mounting bracket on the M2N32.

The M2N32's standard mounting bracket is a bit different compared to the other M2N's that are based on the 570MCP and lower and even with the newer AM3+ boards. The standard mounting holes/bracket on the M2N32 is mounted horizontally instead over vertically like most boards. The problem with this is that with some HS/fans that require you to remove the AMD mounting bracket, you won't be able to mount the new HS/fan in the usual exhaust going to the back of the case and you will either have the exhaust going on to your GPU (would not recommend that) or towards the top of the case.

My Zalman CNPS 9900max forces me to mount my HS/fan venting out the top of my case because of the AMD's mounting bracket positioning on the M2N32 and their custom retention bracket is not flexible and I am forced to mount it into a fixed position. I know that the D14 is pretty much the same story on the M2N32 when it comes to mounting. My Antec 900 has a massive 200mm fan at the top which vents out so I did not mind that I was forced to have my HS/Fan vent towards the top. My CPU temp rises about 2-3 degrees when I put my GPU at full load.

The cooler master hyper EVO looks to be very M2n32 friendly. I was watching a YouTube vid on installation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSltsAMIoAs&feature=related) and it looks like the top retention clip can pivot around the HS/Fan so you can pretty much mount it so that it vents out either towards the back of the case or the top. Note that this guy choose to mount the EVO so that it vents out the top of the case but you can point it towards the back easily.

Here's a pic of my HS/Fan which i am forced to have it vent towards the top.

Try this. In windows go to start > run > and type in "services.msc" and look for Phenom MSR Tweaker service. If it is on anything other then automatic, set it to automatic. If it is not in there, the program might not be installed correctly so I would reinstall it. Also i found this post which helped me out a lot when i first set up PMT

I use Zalman CNPS 9700 Heat sink fan units and they work ok for me. I'm sure they don't get the best performance bang for the buck but there is a ton of them on ebay wink.gif

Yeah the 9700 don't get the best bang for the buck these days when there's the CM Hyper EVO tongue.gif I actually have a Zalman 9700 which I used on my M2N32 with my old dual core. The installs on those were easy since they have a clip you can pivot on the base of the HS to the AMD mounting bracket and you were done. Funny thing is that when I got my 9900max, I put the retention clips on the HS and compared it to a old AM2 motherboard that I had laying around and it would go in just fine having it vent towards the back of the case. When I got to my M2N32, that's when I learned when that the AMD retention bracket was flipped around making normal mounting impossible with this HS.

I was looking at another Zalman cooler earlier that has the fan sliding in the front row of fins. Looked like a nice cooler but I did not read any reviews and I already moved on to other things I need to get done atm. redface.gif

I just always liked the look of the CNPS 9700 NT mod'd w/blue LED's wink.gif

To Agent_kenshin:

Thanks for the link, I had found that before, and I agree it is very helpful!

After log in, I can see that the service is started. However, the settings are not in effect. When I restart the service, they immediately take effect (watching this all through CPU-Z). To check this, I have all P* set to the same settings - so it is pretty clear that there is something either preventing or over writing the settings after the service is started by windows. If there is a particular service that makes sense to wait for that will reasonably delay the service start-up, I can simply add it as a dependency to the PMT service.
