Generally, I look at the cooler specs first and then go to my mainboard manufacturer's site to determine what mounting system the board supports (socket clips or 4 hole). If the method of attachment differs, then I have to find another heatsink (well, i'm sure you knew that).

cheers,

dave

EDIT: oh, you're going to need tons of room to put that cooler on...just FYI...

for those who don't know what this heatsink looks like, go here' ">http://www.zalman.co.kr/englis...uct/cnps7000a-alcu.htm.

the problem is, the manufacturer homepage says NF7-S isn't supported, but some people claim it can be mounted

i ask those who claim it can be mounted HOW they were able to mount it (ask for pictures too...)

if it require moving capacitors or resistors (via soldering), i'd say that it's not worth it...however, simply moving the capacitors out of the way (pushing, bending) wouldn't be too bad...just be damn careful.

just some tips.

cheers,

dave
