Zalman 9500 and Silent Eagle Fit?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I have the thermaltake Silent Eagle II on my northbridge right now and now that I am oc i want a better cooler than the thermaltake silent 775d. So i was looking at the Zalman due to the rave reviews. However I am concerned getting the two to fit on my board will not work due to the size of the Zalman.

I know my case has room because plenty of people run it in the Antec 900 but I dont want to order it and have it not fit with the north bridge cooler.

Anybody know if it is possible if not I will look at other cooler options.

nm problem solved. Ended up just going with the CM Hyper 212+ and saving money. It was rated highly on here and newegg as a budget cooler for OC.

Yeah i got a little bit to fill between the copper and aluminum and scrapped excess with a fine edge. Then I used the 3 little strips method as seen several times on here (debated with single blob ect). Seems to have worked fine temps have dropped significantly and even out heat between cores.
