post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Anyone know what the Maximum recommended Heat Sink weight for an intel p67cpu?

I want to mount Arctic CoolingFreezer 13 Pro with weight of 1.05 kg on an Asus p67 Sabertooth motherboard. http://www.arctic.ac/en/p/cooling/cp...ro.html?c=2181

It depends on the motherboard, not on the CPU or chipset. I think 0.8kg is acceptable, but over 1kg the motherboard could get a little bent. If the cooler has a big backplate to spread the weight, then probably even a 1kg cooler will work, but you most definitely shouldn't move your rig as any shock could rip the socket out. My take is that such heavy coolers should be hooked to the top of the case to avoid unpleasant surprises.
