    By the way, the Thermalright HR-05 SLI/IFX really doesn't fit that well. There are two capacitors that hit the heat pipes. I had to bend the heat pipe on the left a little bit to get the heat sink to sit strait on the Motherboard. It was a bit of a pain.

    Looks really good!

    The only thing is Id assumed u were mounting the cooler in a front to back alignment.
    Maybe theres no room,even with memory in slots 2 and 4? or you could have a lot of top mounted fans or something.

    That wouldn't have fit in that direction. The memory sockets would have hit the heatpipes on the northbridge. Also, I wouldn't have been able to have the push pull setup on my megahalems CPU cooler.

    Looks good to me!

    Nice job bending the heatpipes, I know that can be a chore!

    I wish they would make one where the heatpipes come off the NB Block and go way over towards the rear of the case before it bends up and fins are added, then we all could use one like that and have no worries about fitting them in with other items.

    I'm looking at a block for my NB as it is VERY Hot, think I am about to grab this one for my X58 to match my CPU Block >>
