    Update: I Finally got the megahalems in my hands now, and I'm broke. tried it with the fan blowing to the back, and it FIT like a glove. you will not be able to fit the blackops included NB fan though, but that's ok for me for now.

    Please add Prolimatech Megahalems to the compatibility list.

    Pictures please?

    Did you try mounting it blowing upwards? Does it fit with the NB fan? How much does it cover the RAM slots?

    need to borrow camera. Havent tried mounting it with fan blowing upwards. But if you mount it with the fan blowing to the back using a 120mm x 25mm fan, I believe all ram slots are usable. I'll try mounting it with fan blowing up. i'll get pics when I can borrow a camera. But so far it looks like a good steal. I'll also get the chipset cooler just to see if I can fit it.

    This picture is actually of my low profile HDD cooler fan mounted under the edge of the TRUE. There wasn't much clearance and the fan itself was next to useless cooling wise.



    I have my TRUE the other way now with the fan moved up enough to accommodate the Foxconn supplied NB cooling fan




    It's a little dusty in there, must be cleanout time

    I've just ordered the Thermalright HR-05 IFX SLI Northbridge Heatsink so I'll let you know whether it fits or not.

    I'm hoping it will fit on top of the heatpipe plate once the Water/Dice pot is removed (see pic 3) and between the TRUE and the video card using the bolt on method as per Step 8 of the push pin installation guide on the page I linked to, if not I can always drop the video card down to the red PCIE slot.



    I'll keep you posted

    Do you have your comp. set up in a spraypainter's booth with the case side off?

    It has been a while since it has had a cleanout I'll admit but it is also very dry and dusty where I live, it hasn't rained for months here so dust is everywhere.

    Double post for bump

    I received the Thermalright HR-05 IFX SLI Northbridge Heatsink as ordered.

    My original plan of having the cooler fins parallel to my vid card was sunk by the m/board holes - Thermalright bracket orientation, it just isn't possible, so I compromised, this involved changing the TRUE fan position to accomodate the NB heatsink. (see pics)

    As per my earlier posts I had my 120mm True fan in the "suck" orientation blowing toward the bottom of the case, it is now still in the suck orientation but exhausting toward my psu fan (improved airflow ) at the top of the case.

    It eventuated that my case could not support my vid card length if I tried to use the red PCIE slot, it just wouldn't fit (it's pretty tight in the top slot) so I decided to rotate the NB cooler 90°C from its originally proposed position

    All seems good so far with around a 5°C drop in NB temp.


    EDIT: I have yet to place an 80mm fan on the NB heatsink so more to be gained yet I suppose

    2nd edit: Do not be scared of the heatpipes, they're quite malleable (within reason)

    More testing and screens to follow

    Nice going.
    Will you reorientate your TRUE now so the fan blows out the back of the case?
    With that big ugly block removed from the NB I'd imagine you would now have the clearanve to do so - could you confirm this please?
    ps, I just ordered a Megahalems CPU cooler, It is very similar dimensions to the TRUE, and also a 60mm fan to replace my kaput NB one. Will be very interested in seeing your NB temps once you have a fan the cooler, I may have to copy your setup.

    I didn't reorientate the True because the NB cooler didn't allow enough room for a push setup with the True fan and a pull setup would have (nearly) had my cpu fan and rear exhaust fan touching but not aligned (spindle centres).

    Another reason is the fact that I find the cooler is more efficient this way.

    I'm not sure if I'll ever get around to trying a fan on the NB cooler as my new Asus Rampage Extreme / Dominator 1866Mhz parts are due any day now.

    My Megahalems arrived today and I put it on after work. Temps are WAY cooler than the stock POS cooler managed. My ram has high heat sinks, so east-west orientation is out. I stuck it on north - south (standard way) and not only does it fit, but it could mount a pair of 38mm fans in push - pull!
    The 60mm fan I got to replace my dead NB fan is slightly too thick for the screws to mount it, and it would conflict with the Megahalems. Zip ties are a wonderful thing, and the heat pipes are a handy mounting point.
    NB temps down by 20c with fsb (still) @ 1333. Have CPU @ 1.4v, 3837MHz at the moment, cool (mid 40's @ load but not prime stable yet. Will try a bit more juice...

    3837MHz (333 x 11.5) "prime stable" 7 1/2 hours @ 1.400 vcore.
    4000 MHz (333 X 12) @ 1.4375 fails prime under 30 seconds, but manages vantage, hot cpu, games...
    I'm pretty happy with 3875 - approx %55 OC 24/7, and 4000 for benchmarking... but I'd be even happier with 4000+ 24/7 stable and 4??? for bench...
    Only had this rig for a few weeks or four, and a bit of a OCing n00b, so hopefully can get there with some more tweaking...
    Any recommended settings I could try? My RAM doesn't like going much above 1333(1:4 - 333), even with higher latencies and volts (9-9-9-924 / 2.10v) -7/7/7/20 @ 1.801 at the moment, (1333) seems to work.
