Thanks Ph*! The Xigmatek Porter will work for this application too. The Xigmatek needs to be bent just a bit like I did the HR-05 on mine, but not nearly as much. The thing I didn't like was that the Xiggy is like nearly 50% larger than the HR-05, but if you don't need that PCI slot, it would definitely be a better choice being bigger, especially if you're MCP is at 87! :holy****eyesbulgingoutsmiley: haha

The Zaward twin towers chip set cooler would work as well. My thought on that one was to just not use the middle tower and only the outer. Whichever one you use just depends on whether or not you need to use whichever slots they might occupy.

And of course the Thermaltake Extreme Spirit II will work just like the one I modded onto my 650i board. That little cooler is amazing for it's size. The ONLY reason I didn't use it this time is because it is solid copper and would not match. If you do use that one, I'll send you the bracket I made for it to mount the thing. It would work with that cooler well on for that mod, but not the other two as their heat pipes are in the way.

Let me know if you have any questions or if you would like to see all my pictures. I am really excited to see more people taking this type of mod on! Good luck!!! And be sure to let me know when you get going on your mod.

Thanks a million guys! There really wasn't anything too difficult about the whole project other than making the time for it. The hours sure did pile up by the time I was done.

Those types of remarks sure do help reflect the pride I have in making it my own. Thanks again!

Thanks guys!

Haha, No joke! I have an extra AC that runs in my bedroom even during the winter. I may as well wire in a switch so that it turns on my AC at the same time as when I power on my gaming system.
