    Question EP45-UD3P with Sunbeam CCF

    hey guys!
    I'm new to this forum.
    I ordered an EP45-UD3P and a Sunbeam CCF (core contact freezer)

    I've looked around and many people say that the CCF won't fit.
    Is there anyway i can mod the heatsink to get it to fit?
    or maybe take the cover off of the northbridge heatsink (why did they even put a cover on top of the heatsink?)

    well here's the thing, a lot of posts i've googled say that the outer part of the clip pushes on the top of the NB Heatsink.
    Without the clips, the Sunbeam would clear everything just fine.
    does anyone know if i can remove the heatsink covers on the north bridge?
    or is it welded on to the heatsink?

    I don't but it still might not fit. The cooler is huge, look at my link.

    Good luck man,

    Let me know how it goes, it is close with fan pointing towards the power regulation. So if your willing to pull the heatsinks I'm sure you could get it to fit.

    I'm posting memory tests tonight.

    Maybe you could clip it upside down so that part mentioned is on the top of the board instead of the NB side

    I have the CCF-92 (Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF92-4 92mm Core-Contact Freezer CPU Cooler W/TX-2 - CPU Fans & Heatsinks) and I was able to get it to fit on my EP45-UD3P 1.1 without modding. Only point to note is that the clip slightly presses the small MOS_HS2 heatsink. It appears to not be a problem, however, since the hold down clips are spring-loaded and the heatsink seems to still have enough contact on MOS_HS2. I have attached a pic.
