    Default Will Ninja fit on the EX38-DS4?

    Hello!

    I am planning to build a system with passive 9600 GT, E8400, Enermax MODU82+ 625W PSU, and the other usuals inside an Antec Solo case. I may or may not be able to cool enough with a Ninja running passive, so my questions are:

    1. Will the Ninja fit on the EX38-DS4?

    2. Will the Ninja with 120mm fan blowing through to the rear case fan fit on the board?

    3. I know the RAM slots are closer to the CPU socket on this board than on other P35 boards I've seen, so will there be an issue using Ninja with fan?


    Thanks for your help.

    Rev B fits, Dont know about others. I have seen several threads about it working fine no comments about a fan though, but surely they used one. Ill look for some pics


    *Edit* I cant find any pics of this setup, but....
    Well ya can likely just put the fan in a PULL position out the back of the case if it does indeed get in the way. Or you could use slots 2+4

    I know some people use it passive, no fan, but not sure if passive would work for me.

    As long as placing the memory in slots 2 & 4 doesn't create a problem, then that would be a solution, and the fan doesn't cover slot 2. If the fan covered slot 2, then I might as well put the memory in 1 & 3 slots.

    I also notice the PCI-E x16 card might be an issue because of closeness to the memory slots.

    Sure would be helpful If I could get more definitive information.

    There's no interference at all between my 9600gt and RAM on a EP35-DS3P.

    If the fans covers RAM slot 2 how could not cover 1 as well?
    Take care,

    You can also if you have to CUT the fan bracket on the bottom end, it does not HAVE to be there. So you could use a wire clipper or dremmel and remove the bottom are of the brace if you do have issues. Or put the fan on the opposite side in a PULL configuration

    The Ninja may overhang the memory, but there is clearance above, between the top of the memory and the bottom of the Ninja's fins. It might not work with tall heat spreaders on the memory, so don't use tall heat spreaders. The normal heat spreaders on my G.Skill RAM work fine, with plenty of clearance. Just install the RAM first.

    There's a picture on this page showing clearance above RAM, under an attached fan...

    Amy,

    Oh, forgot you said 2x2GB. I was just thinking 2x 1GB as I have XP and 2GB is enough. I think you have this one. When using 2 x 2GB isn't it best to first install 2 sticks before loading XP and after that put in the other 2 sticks?

    I didn't see your blue ones available as 2x1GB, but they should be available somewhere.
