    Well for starters you would want your Fan to be blowing out the back of your case. Just thought I would say that as I was not sure if you meant between CPU and PCI because of fan or not.

    But yes, if fits here is Image someone posted for a similar persons question. They asked about the NB heatsink and the ram slots >>>

    That image is clearly of an Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro. The Xigmatek HDT-S1283 is a bit larger. The 7 Pro has a 92mm fan and the 1283 seems to come with a 120mm fan.

    The translation I got from the German was:

    Translation: German English

    Bekommst wrong forum despite an answer: I have exactly this combination GA-P35-DS3 + Xigmatek HDT-S1283. A perfect fit. The Xigmatek is slightly narrower than a Scythe Mugen, for example. The heatsink covers roughly a quarter of the North Bridge cooler, but I believe that the cooling of the chipset on the basis of airflow through the Xigmatek fan is better than the Intel Boxed cooler.
    Covering part of the N.B. makes sense as the Xigmatek HDT-S1283 is a bit larger than the AC Freezer 7 Pro.

    Just my personal opinion.
    I didn't like the Xigmatek Heat-pipe Direct Touch technology. Basically in the new 45nm Intel processors, the heat generation is strongly centered (direction depends of # of cores and see Artic Silver 5 pictures below).
    So, basically only the centered copper pipe will do all the work since the other two, at the left and right, will get only some portion of the heat badly conduced laterally by the tiny stainless-steel CPU top plate.
    Worst yet, if incorrectly positioned, with a 90 degrees shift, the transfer will be ever worst.
    So, again, IMMO, Xigmantek used the most cheaper way to make a CPU cooler and not the more efficient one. There are better cooler options in the market for sure.

    YA, After I posted that I seen the actual comparison of the two. Originally I thought the user had just put that fan on their because the direct comment was a answer to the same as above saying "Yes it fits, see image here"

    But then yes, I translated that German page, so that is why I also posted it as well.

    Yeap, Thermalright Ultra 120 would be a better choice

    Thanks for the replies please have a look at the attached photo this is the heatsink on a P35-DS3P.
    The 1st photo shows a heatsink on a P35-DS3 not the P version

    If you already have the board you could measure it. Keep posting in forums until someone with the P version speaks up or read alot of the Newegg reviews to see if anyone posted a review with the P version.

    That NB heatsink seems so high that you may have to buy a cooler with a stock width of the Intel cooler. If you do have to measure be careful as some measurments posted of HxWxD are mixed up. Make sure it makes sense before you buy.

    That is a DQ6 model heatsink above, yours is a small square

    DS3 and DS3P are the same heatsink just so you know
