That should do you good. It'll mount the hsf by clamping it down with the crossbar instead of standard am2/3 clips on sides. The crossbar mounts in both directions. I am about to get one for my Xig S1283. By the way it looks, it should be compatible with almost any cooler,a s long as you carefully look over you're cooler. IF there's a nice sized gap between the start of the fins and the base, this should be perfect.
The Megahalems AM2 mounting kit will not fit with the Xigmatek. I tried using that on my old AMD Athlon computer with S1283 just to see and its incompatible. It is a good thing I had a Mega too.

BTW, what timings do you guys suggest I try to tighten up my RAM with besides the standard CAS-tRCD-tRP-tRAS? My current timings are 9-9-9-24-33. I was wondering if I could do 9-9-9-20-30? I don't know the relation each timing has with the one before it. I thought it was based on a pattern. Like, if I knock tRAS from 24 to 20, I;d have to knock tRC from 33 to 29, right? Wrong? I can honestly say the RAM wont do anything BUT 9-9-9 for sure. Ive already tried 8-8-8, and it just dont take,e ven with 1.85v on RAM.

How exactly is it incompatible tho? It seems as if the crossbar would go right thru middle of Xig, and the pressure of tightening it down should hold it. Is it a matter of the crossbar doesn't go down enough, or what? I will do what it takes to mod the mount if its a small problem. I have no problem fabricating and modding to get it to work.

Here's my opinion of 1.6 (noob to the board)....this things insane: here's my brag post from the 550 BE club thread - I unlocked my cores today successfully with this board and that BIOS:

DDR3 noob who bought 2000 RAM intentionally as it's breezing along at 1700 at 8 timings....oohh yeah (in Koolaid Man Voice)

2300 NB... and I'm not satisfied? ...nice..

I don't listen to the "designed for Intel" crap. RAM is RAM is RAM..

Still would like to try to get to 2000....but don't want to lower multi.. It wouldn't allow me to pick anything higher than 1600 - did I miss anything? I'll try to get stable first...

so far so good!

There are two little holes on the crossbar that fit on top of the Mega. If you could drill new holes into the crossbar, put long enough screws with a small nut and washer, then it might work on the Xiggy.

keep HT around 2k.

I'm gonna stick with 3.2GHz for now. It was stable for 9 hours on Prime95. max temp 49c. In a couple days I'll go for 3.5.

How do I update my club entry?

I think i just got 3.727 stable on my first crack at it... Running OCCT stability test and everything seems to be fine. Temps so far seem to be at 62 though, is that safe? Sadly i need to up to ram speed and tighten the timings but will do that when this baby is stable first.

I did it through AMD Overdrive though, is that bad? Should i do it in bios instead?

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=782816

Let me know if theres something i should change or do differently need all the critism i can get

*EDIT* Im using the stock cooler with fans all around the mobo, my sig lies. Definately going to need to get water or a mega.

You should try to have your CPU temp under 60 in loads. But whatever you choose to replace your stock cooler, your temp should go down a bit. I'm not really a fan of AMD Overdrive. I prefer bios when overlocking but that's my preference.

You won't make it to 2000 on your ram. The IMC is the limiting factor for that. I would bet the best you could do for 24/7 use would be around 1800 max and that is usually where the IMC starts becoming unstable. I have seen a little over 1900 during a bench session (not mine but screenshots of someone else) but I have yet to see 2000.
