Big Typhoon compatible with my Mobo?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi, thinking of purchasing a ThermalTake Big Typhoon at a local computer store (CompUSA ), since I don't have a credit card to buy online.

Well my motherboard is a MSI-PT880 LSR.

Pictures identical to my actual mobo are attached.

Does it look like it's compatible with the Big Typhoon?

The only thing I'm worried about is the capacitors next to the socket, but since the big typhoon rises high off the mobo I'm gueesing the caps might not be an issue.

Thanks for all replies.

It should fit, I don't see any blatant reason why it wouldn't. My BT does not touch ANYTHING around my CPU socket, it is very compact at the base.

It should fit just take the plastic heatsink adapter out.
Very nice!

Your motherboard will not be the resticting object. Instead it will be your case and PSU. Make sure you have plenty of distance from the PSU to the processor HS.

The only issue I see is possibly the heatsink hitting the power supply...the distance from socket <--> edge of board is awful small, but it'll probably fit. Go for it...

EDIT: Aw cold...I got beaten to it by paul...sigh.

Alrite thanks for all replies let me see if there's enough clearance between Socket and PSU.

Checks your user CPs, .

There's a 28mm clearance between the black plastic bracket and the PSU, is that fine or too small?

You need 1 1/2 inch from center of socket for it to clear!
A little less if you trim off the retainer "H" shaped bracket.
