It fits east/west..that's how mine is set up (with dual 1850rpm Gentle Typhoons). With the high heat spreaders on my RAM I can't fill out all 6 ram slots.

No. Only if you think you've done something wrong in putting it together.

That's what I mean. If you mess up and have to redo it. Do you have to take the backplate that's behind the motherboard off?

If all you did wrong was on the top of the mb, you can leave the backplate on.

Ok. So i put everything on correctly, I want to try a new TIM on my cpu and cpu heatsink.

Do I need to take off the back plate off of the mother board to take the megahalem off and reapply the new thermal paste?

Sorry I'm a noob, need explained to me.

What are the best fans to use with this heatsink? I want to overclock to 3.8ghz with my i7 930 and evga x58 4x sli motherboard e762 and my corsair dominator 6gb ddr3 1600 mhz ram.

Does the megahalems work in push/pull east to west with that motherboard? I heard it does.

If all you want to do is try a new TIM, you don't have to do a thing except undo those two mounting screws and lift the heatsink off.

Can't tell you about your mb.

There is some suggestion that having your air go upward (south-north) is better than sideways (east-west and west-east), but your best bet is to try it out all three ways.

As for fans, see item 1 in my sig.

Read a bit of that review. Still don't know the bottom line.. I was looking at setting up a push/pull east to west with either 2 gentle typhoons or 2 scythe s flexs. Which are better?

I prefer GT's - I'm using six right now. I have three S-Flexes and don't use them. Others prefer the S-Flexes.

On the Megahalems in my daughter's non-oc rig I put a single San Ace 9S1212L401. But then I can put the pins on, sleeve it and put on the plug.

There is no bottom line.

Ok the damn gt ap-15s are impossible to find. Do the scythe s-flexs perform close to the gt ap-15s on this heatsink?

What fans preform the closest to the gt ap-15s for this heatsink?
