    Default Zalman CNPS10X Performa & ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Professional

    I'm thinking about getting the ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Professional motherboard to replace an MSI 790XT-G45 DDR2 board that's giving me some of the oddest issues I have ever seen *wont let me play Fraps AVI's in WMP lol...*. Now to my real question, I have a Zalman CNPS10X Performa CPU cooler with 2 120mm fans on it and I'm wondering if anyone knows if the 2nd 120mm fan will hit the VRM heatsink as I just looked over some reviews on newegg.com and one of them mentioned he had to turn his H/S to not hit the VRM H/S, I really don't want to have to do that lol let alone I'm not even sure that the CNPS10X can do that with AMD chips if I remember correctly. Any help on this would be appreciated.

    Using 10x with 2 fans.. fact is u can move the fan clips up or down slightly thru the fins anyway..
    Me personally I have the intake fan lower than standard and moved ram to slots 2and 4 .
    Exhaust fan you can also move up and down a bit for clearance if needed.
    Reviews as you probably know. dual fans dont make a huge diff except at v hi overclocks, so it isnt critical.
    Current Systems:

    Asrock p67 Extreme6.............. Gigabyte EP-45 UD3 ...................... Gigabyte 73 PVM S2
    Intel i5 2500k 4.8ghz................ Intel Q8400 3.8ghz......................... Intel D820 2.8ghz
    Zalman 10x cooler.................... Coolermaster V8............................ HP cooler
    8GB Gskill ripjaw ddr3.............. 4GB Gskill PI ddr2.......................... 4GB samsung ddr2
    60GB ssd/500GB HDD .............. WD 1TB hdd.................................... Seagate 160GB hdd
    GTX 460 1GB x2 SLI ................. Msi 9600GT 512MB(died) ........... Onboard gx
    Win7 64 ,750w psu(ocz)............ Win7 64 ,520w psu,seasonic...... Win XP pro ,400w psu

    HEC 6A34 case . ....................... Jeantec R2 case............................ Packard Bell case

    lol...now that I think about it I could do that >.<, and the intake fan doesn't hit my ram atm or the new ram I'm getting so that's not an issue. An yes the whole reason I got this cooler was to OC my 955BE which was at 3.8GHz *having 2 fans helps with load temps alot btw* for about 6 months until I used AoD to increase my Vcore from the default v1.3250 to v1.3750, after that I started getting random BSODs on bootup so I dumped AoD, but now I can't OC higher then 3.7GHz without a BSOD and I can't play Fraps AVI's in WMP anymore either, so hopefully when I get this new board those issues will go away lol.
