post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello, my Q6600 CPU runs at about 40-58 Degress Celcius and its summer over here and it gets really hot and i just need to know if i get a aftermarket cpu cooler on my DP35DP motherboard will anything touch because right now because theres something under the chip which looks kind big and im scared if i buy a cpu cooler and it wont fit because of that i just wasted my money i put a black circle around the part im thinking it might hold it back from getting put in

What case do you have?

Depends on the cooler though, I'd recommend a Coolermaster Hyper 212+ if you have a good case for it.



This fellow has the same board and has fit the original Hyper 212. It looks like it'd fit in the other orientation as well.
