    Default CPU Cooler Scythe Mugen 2 Rev.B Install on Ga Ep45UD3p rev1.1

    Hello.

    I intend to purchase this Cpu Cooler.
    hardwareversand.de - Artikel-Information - SCYTHE Mugen 2 CPU-K

    (English option top left on web site.)

    I have confirmed that the cooler will fit (just) in my coolermaster centurion 5 case.

    I believe this wil fit on my motherboard.
    GA-EP45-UD3P (rev. 1.1) - GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - BIOS

    However I am running 2x2gb ram with tall heat spreaders. I am able to move these to the next 2 matched slots (ddr2) without problem.

    Corsair Ram:
    Newegg.ca - CORSAIR XMS2 DHX 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X4096-6400C4DHX

    Can you please advise as to whether or not it will now fit?

    Thanks

    That is a great cooler. I have it cooling a Q9650 @ 4.0 ghz. I had to run the ocz 1066 stick to fit it under mugen 2. Note it is a pain in the a$$ to install. It keeps temps in the 30F. The crazy thing is you can install 4 fans on it.

    Well.

    I took the chance and bought it anyway.

    I can confirm it fits the GA EP45 UD3p rev1.1 Motherboard without problem.
    The Ram modules are not affected at all.
    I can add two for modules of Ram without unstalling the cooler.

    Only thing now is to probably remount at a rotation of 90 degrees (which is possible).
    This will allow me to mount the 120mm fan on the side that is next to the Ram.

    Idea being to blow air in the cooler from this side and straight out the back with my rear exhaust fan.

    Hope this helps anyone who has the same question.
