    Default coolermaster v8 on ep45-ud3p?

    i am wondering if the v8 will fit on the ep45-ud3p the right way, because if in the pictures it looks like they want you to put it on your board so that the fan will blow out the top of your case and not the back of your case, is that true or can you still put it on with the fan blowing out your rear fan.

    I have the same board and fan, Yes it will fit where it blows toward the back fan. Just mount it so you can see V8 correctly.

    You can mount it both ways.
    For most extraction to the back is the most efficient.
    Just make sure you will have a case 170mm + wide .
    160mm for the V8 and another cm or so for the depth of the mbrd+cpu.
    For example my case wasnt wide enough originally,I had to fit a perspex "bubble".
    Current Systems:

    Asrock p67 Extreme6.............. Gigabyte EP-45 UD3 ...................... Gigabyte 73 PVM S2
    Intel i5 2500k 4.8ghz................ Intel Q8400 3.8ghz......................... Intel D820 2.8ghz
    Zalman 10x cooler.................... Coolermaster V8............................ HP cooler
    8GB Gskill ripjaw ddr3.............. 4GB Gskill PI ddr2.......................... 4GB samsung ddr2
    60GB ssd/500GB HDD .............. WD 1TB hdd.................................... Seagate 160GB hdd
    GTX 460 1GB x2 SLI ................. Msi 9600GT 512MB(died) ........... Onboard gx
    Win7 64 ,750w psu(ocz)............ Win7 64 ,520w psu,seasonic...... Win XP pro ,400w psu

    HEC 6A34 case . ....................... Jeantec R2 case............................ Packard Bell case

    thank's fro the info, but i was wondering if any of you had any trouble getting to the top middle motherboard screw when you had the v8 installed and tried to mount your board in your case, because it looks like it might be tough to get to?

    again here with the case I use.. CM 690 ....no problems
    all screw are in Place...I use a long screw driver
    make sure you secure the V8 to the MB tightly and
    it's a children play game...

    Good Luck with you build

    one more quick clearance ?, how is the ram slot clearance, because i am getting g.skill pi black ram and i am pretty sure that it will fit fine underneat the cooler, or that cooler wont even be in the way at all, but since i have just oredered my ram and have not started building yet i was just wondering if i am right and i dont have anything to worry about space wise.

    thanks

    I have the Corsair Dominator which is fairly tall then stick the dominator fans on top of them and it's not even close to being a problem.
