    Default GA-X38-DQ6 CPU heatsink options?

    With the release of the X38 motherboards this month, I wish to know if the Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme will fit on the GA-X38-DQ6 with the Crazycool backplate in place?

    Thermalright Ultra-120 can use in GA-P35-DQ6, So it should can use in GA-X38-DQ6. But very closed.

    @Janus Yeh,

    'Very Closed'? Please explain. I am concerned that the backplate of the Ultra-120 will interefere with the CrazyCool backplate. Will the Crazycool backplate need to be removed first, or is there an alternative mounting method?

    I think he meant "very close" saying the fit would probably be a little tight.

    @rkl525,

    Understood, but I want know if I need to remove the heatsinks on the backside to get the Ultra-120 mounted, or is there a way to leave them on?
