Giant air cooler with ASUS M4N75TD

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Good news everyone, I have decided to aim for 4GHz now and I'm looking for a high-performing air cooling solution.

I'm currently considering the Scythe Yasya or the Thermaltake Frio ($50 is my sweet spot) thanks to this list. Any other suggestions are welcome.

Problem is, I have 4x2GB G.SKILL Ripjaws sticks installed (that is, taking up all four RAM slots) with those stupid fins on top that make them even taller than they need to be. I want to check whether either one of those heatsinks would take up a RAM slot or two. It's the ASUS M4N75TD motherboard with the nVIDIA 750a SLI chipset.

Anyone tried a massive heatsinked CPU cooler with this motherboard with all four RAM slots occupied?

the coolermaster hyper 212+ is a good choice. there is also the xigmatek cooler, and the promilitech armaggedon (if it has an am3 bracket)

The Spire Thermax Eclipse II is pretty much the same as the frio. Costs a bit less too.

remember; the Corsair H70 only costs about $40 more, and is totally worth it.

Le thanks.

But my more important issue stands: will they fit on top of my RAM?

I'm not too interested in water cooling, as it can get pricey. Air cooler noise isn't too much of an issue for me because I use circumaural headphones (5.1 ftw).

Hmm, the Spire TherMax Eclipse II looks really good; clearance might be a bit better than the Thermaltake Frio too. I think Imma go with that one.
