So you're saying that Socket FS1b (AM1 is the platform) uses the same mount spacing as an Intel socket (2 pins instead of 4). If so, do you know which socket?
I will need a custom cooler..... I had a E-350 (18w) in a Habey mITX case. The stock heatsink was decent in size with a fan. I had to run the fan at audible levels to prevent overheating.Originally Posted by joyman
Actually I don't think there is real need for custom coolers. But I noticed that motherboard got hotter than the cpu, there are elements that are about 55 degrees Celsius when under prime load.
I plan to put this into old radio, so perhaps I will remove the fan from the heatsink and mount some 12/14cm low profile fan to cool the hole board.
Nice. The "No Go" zone is 80x80mm with two mounting points at the corner of a 60x60mm square.Originally Posted by Neclock
I just saw a Noctua AM1 announcement. It is a low profile cooler ready for fanless operation.
Look at page 23. In the pdf image it is mounted on an ASUS AM1I-A motherboard. It is my mbso I know if fits.
FYI the diagonal spacing from hole to hole is actually 85mm. The NB heatsink i ordered doesn't even come close. I recommend anyone with AM1 and considering a aftermarket cooler take a manual measurement of the mounting holes. Knowing this puts many intel coolers back on the possibilities table.Originally Posted by DuckieHo

The mounting holes are 60x60mm. Knowing that, it should be easier to find compatible designs.
There are chipset heatsinks that are designed for 59x59mm... those might work.
