MSI K8N Mobo's + TT Blue Orb 2

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok first off I am at 2.31ghz for my current clocks on a stock HSF...

http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=63406

What I am wondering is, if any other peeps have a MSI K8N mobo and have issues when seating the Thermaltake Blue Orb 2 on it...from the looks of what reviews I have looked at, there just might be a memory issue.....hopefully if everything works out I will be able to get 2.6ghz-2.7ghz out of my A64 3000+ Winnie.....


sorry wrong forum ......didnt realize this

You shouldn't have a problem at all. The only thing to remember is that you might have to have your memory installed before you seat the heatsink. I have the Zalman 7700 and I think it's the exact same dimensions as yours. I haven't tried, but it looks like I could remove my memory without taking off the heatsink. Either way, it fits fine. The only question is whether or not that first ram stick can be moved after your heatsink is seated.
Edit: Nah, I just looked closely at it and I most definitely could remove/install ram with the heatsink in place.
