I get maybe 1 cm of clearance between my Megahalems and my ram.
With how it looks, my RAM seems to be the tallest component aroud the CPU.

I actually am somewhat new to all of this, so could you tell me, what is a mosfet and what it loos like? I know what the NB is, but am unclear on what it looks like.

Are the mosfet and NB linked with the cooling system around my CPU bracket? So where it says "Ultra Durable" and "Gigabyte"?

Did you disable the cpu fan detection in the BIOS?

was going to just put a link to these pics but I checked with D3TH.GRUNT & it was ok to post pics here. I hope they aren't too big.
I was using the TRUE 120 push/pull no washer mod for years its good but found better .
I lapped the TRUE & yes, I lapped the Mega.
I used IC Diamond TIM on both TRUE & Mega
I ran the TRUE at same BIOS sets, fan setup, ambient, & hardware as the Mega.
Same everything, apples to apples.
Both prime95 blend 30 mins. 79F ambient.
Can I join?


The first pic is the Mega kit with extra fan clips.
Mega stock .(quite distorted,not flat)

220 grit after 1 sheet paper used
you can see where it was high(convex) in the center,dark spots on corners.

2000 grit done, its kind of blurry,the sun was hitting it.
3 of the finished Mega lap

Next are of
TRUE case setup
TRUE lap
Mega case setup

next is a pic of fan filter on Mega, had it on the TRUE so apples to apples.
They are identical fan setups with fan filter on both push fans.
pics of the TRUE 120 & the Thermalright 90.
pic of particle trap filter I use on air compressor to clean inside of pc, fans,etc.
It traps water & super small particles in the glass bowl.

Next is install of the Mega
step 1) Pics of backplate, & MB back before backplate

step2) screw the short end of the double ended stud into the back plate x4.
step3) place 2 aluminum strip adapters as shown.
Notice the vacant hole next to the double ended stud , where long end is sticking up.
So make sure your looks exactly like this looks with 1366.
If you pick up the adapter it can be rotated 180 degrees and it will fit ,but not work.

step4) use 4 screw nuts fingertight to secure the adapters.

Step5) apply IC diamond about 5mm in size in the center, pea size.
I have no problem squeezing it out of tube.
step6) Place the sink on the cpu(make sure MB in level or it will slide off).
put on the mounting plate, between the heatpipes.
use a phillips screwdriver and bottom out the spring screws x 2

spring screw install & tighten
edit: pic from newegg is here still

FAN INSTALL
step7) place fan on the heatsink and put the clip along heatsink side and put clip in holes on fan
after one side fan clip is on the fan stays in place pretty much by itself till you get the other clip on.
In pic I have just one side on and it holds ok.

Thanks for looking
TRUE Prime
Mega prime
edit> pics are gone,website not reliable where I uploaded them to I guess.
I'll try to repost them

Yes, "Ultra Durable" is the heatsink for the mosfet. The mosfet is a type of transistor that regulates the electricity in the motherboard, and it is very important that it stays cool. "Gigabyte" is the location of the northbridge heatsink. There is also another chip on the lower end of the board called a southbridge, but that does not effect your CPU heatsink installation.
