taeric, the Zalman cooler you mentioned... is it that beast of a cooler with the two huge heatsink plates and heatpipes? if so, is there enough room between your video card and the northbridge heatsink for it on your board?

I was referring to the Zalman VF-700CU, a video card cooler. I have an XP-120 on my CPU, and it fits just fine on just fine. The heatpipes actually overhand the Northbridge heatsink just a bit, but there is clearance between them.

It looks like I need to clean the HS. What a mess!
