CPU F/HS retention hole placement for motherboards

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I really don't know if anyone has done this or not but I think it's long overdue. The one thing I always read when a case is reviewed is that the hole behind the motherboard to secure the cpu cooler may not always line up with everyone's motherboards...well I plan to do something about that. I'm sure there's already been something out there done about this but oh well.

This is what I want to do. Provide a pic with your cpu cooler attached to your motherboard from the rear. Give the name of the cpu heatsink/fan and the name of the case and the name of the motherboard that way whenever someone want to know if this particular type of HS/Fan will fit they can go to the thread and check the posts and hopefully make an informed choice and there won't be any worry about if it fits or not.

I will post a pic when I get home but in the mean time the HS/fan is this one below...the asus v72 heatsink/fan

I have an asus P5Q Premium Motherboard, the HAF X and for the record until a pic is posted this cpu cooler sits absolutely dead center right smack dab in the middle...could not be happier with where it is. I guess the cooler name is not really needed just the name of the Mobo and Case but it is always nice to see where the cooler sits at the rear.
