All information would be greatly appreciated ...
and sorry for sounding rude\short

your bios will tell you, then there's utilities that can read the rpm too. I think asus probe ii may have it. let me do a bit of research but I'm sure one of the gurus here will fill in thumb.gif

Just fitted my SA tonight. I certainly don't think they had the combination of my motherboard and case in mind when they designed this heatsink as it wasn't as easy as I'd hoped. Sweat was quite literally dripping off the end of my nose.

Anyway it's in place.. Kind of.. However I simply could not attach the bottom corner of the fan sandwiched between the fins to the bracket/hanger and there's simply no way to get my fingers anywhere near it.

Any hints or tips on getting this fan attached properly?

Use zip ties? I've been reading most of the thread and some ppl use zip/cable ties to secure the fans.



I'm having some serious doubts mine will fit my new mb and the new gpu setup I'm planning frown.gif

Only way to find out is to wait until i get my new mb in the next few days. I'm having reservations any 140mm cooler will fit with the gpu in the top slot. Might have to look into a new cooler, possibly a 120mm cooler frown.giffrown.giffrown.gif

or be creative and use duct tape. biggrin.gif

Seriously tho, it is a slight pain getting the clips to fit when it is in the case. You can take it out then put the fans, but that is too much effort for me. Take the GFX card out. Just take a few seconds and wiggle your fingers around in there and keep going. They should pop in fine with enough work.

My sound card was almost touching the fins when plugged into the top PCIe 1x slot on my motherboard. I moved it to the bottom slot now tho.

saw a pic of RIVE where it bare fits (non SB-e) but the fans will hit.

edit: Im building an x58 build for a friend and I had the mb on hand. It clears the tall vrm heatsink (similar to my new mb). If the fans are pushed to the flush with the cooler and the SA is slightly pushed upwards it may clear my gpu. I wish I could move my gpu, but that is the reason why I spent a lot of money on this new mb is because of the spacing for three air cooled gpu(s). I know x58 may not be the same position as z77 but I'm crossing my fingers. I really love the looks of the SA so here's hoping I keep it smile.gif

I used a pen and slid it down in front of the fan and managed to slide the bottom of the clip into place

It sounds like you tried to install the SA with the motherboard inside the case. It's so much easier to mount the fans outside instead as you have all the room in the world to get those pesky clips on. thumb.gif Yes, it's a tiny bit more work but pays off huge in the end...especially for your sanity! Also I'd look into a different rear exhaust fan. That Noctua will never be able to properly exhaust all the air blowing from the two TY-140's. thumb.gif

Will update OP shortly. thumb.gif

I used the x58 board I have on hand and this is where the top pcie slot would be on my new board. On the x58, its actually where the northbridge heatsink is. I used the install driver cd to perfectly slot it between the heatsink to mark the top part of the pcie slot on my new mb. Now, I looked at the lga1366 socket and its sits midway of the ram dimm slots and I studied the pics of my new mb and it looks to be about the same. Taking into account that if they are aligned about the same the cd would mark the top of the slot and there would be slightly under 5mm of space for the top card. Now this brings up another concern, if it does fit, I don't want the cooler to short the exposed gpu. I know there's no backplate for my gpu model but I'm thinking of using electrical tape on the SA rather than the whole gpu (redface.gif). Would anyone assume any thermal deficiencies by using tap on the edges of the two towers?



So a little research and there's hope I can keep my beasty cooler wheee.gif

Cheers for the reply. Can you elaborate on the Noctua comment for me?

I had it spare and assumed, perhaps wrongly, that it would be better at exhausting the air than the stock Corsair fan. Are you suggesting I replace the Noctua with something else? Any recommendations?
