post #451 of 1212
has anyone tried this for any P55 motherboards?

i went to microcenter today (i have the megashadow purchased), and I tried it with the Gigabyte-P55-UD4P motherboard. With the megashadow mounted, it would cover the closest ram slot.

does anyone know which motherboard avoids this?

Is Mega Shadow compatible with ASUS P7P55D Premium and four DIMMs?

According X-bit labs, this is only possible when it is installed in other orientation:

If you install the cooler so that the airflow is directed towards the top of the case, then the first memory slot may be used for memory modules without heat-spreaders. By the way, the cooler is most effective when it is installed in this particular way than the way on the photo above:

Unfortunately, the one you quoted from X-bit labs in your post is not a P55/LG1156 motherboard.

The Asus P7P55D Premium has 4x ram slots.
The one quoted shows 6.

Is the info in X-bit labs, that the second orientation is better than the first, true?

I thought most OCN people recommend directing the airflow to the rear exhaust and NOT to the top exhaust?

I know, but you can get an idea.

If it is not compatible with 1366 MB with one DIMM onto first slot, then probably it is not compatible with a 1156 MB with a DIMM onto first slot. Whereas the block of slots, in 1156, is closer to the CPU socket. Or no?

Thanks.

Oh I see what you're asking, no, I don't have enough room between the Megahalems and the Noctua U6 chipset heat-sink I put on my NB. I never took off the entire stock board heat-sink, only the modular part. I can only fit a 25mm fan in there, so I picked the one with the highest static pressure, the San Ace 9G1212H401.

That's what I was saying:

http://www.overclock.net/air-cooling...ml#post7289956

I've read that numerous times actually, in X-Bit Labs and other places, although I've never actually witnessed a difference. For me I had to orientate my Megahalems North/South, if I sit it West/East it hits my Noctua U6 chipset heat-sink.

Will be joining in the next few weeks as soon as I get the rest of the parts for my upcoming i7 build. I already got my Mega Shadow off of Ebay cause I was worried no one would have them when I get the rest of my parts. I'll post pics as soon as i can.

When buying a 120x38mm fan clip like this one:
http://www.svc.com/pt-fc12038.html

It's $4, does it come with 4 fan clips? Or do you have to buy 4 of those? In the picture it only shows 1 in the package... $16 for fan clips seem a bit outrageous to me.
