    What about the d-tek fuzion v1 or v2?

    Oh come on, no word on compatibility with one of the best i7 coolers? (better design for i7 then GTZ and EK)

    Just wondering but why do you say that it is better than the EK and GTZ for cooling i7?

    That bloodrage is compatable with me, i can tell you that, I just toook the board out of the box for hte first time, it's a thing of beauty, WOW. It is so sweet, nice heatpipes, all screwed down, no pushpins, all have backplates, I think this has to be one of the best boards I have ever held. I have the EK Supreme, black Derlin for it....

    I concur that the Bloodrage is one of the nicest boards ever! I have been loving mine, especially at the 4.2Ghz I have it with temps of 60C at 100% load on my Swiftech GTX!

    All waterblock designs that use a center inlet will be better at disspating heat then the corner to corner ones due to the nature of the i7 build

    That makes sense! All I know is my Swiftech GTX is keeping my 4.2Ghz i7 920 at 100% load @ 60C so I'm happy with that, especially since I already had the GTX from my 775 build.

    Here's something - I tried to use the new Thermalright fan retention bracket with my Bloodrage and it's a no-go. The RAM slots are too close to the CPU / HS to fit it on there. The wire clips *might* work, but they basically suck. Anyone else run into this / have some good workarounds?

    Good info, thanks! Saaya should update the list soon as I know he is busy helping get the BIOS perfect!

    TRUE & Blood Rage

    The fan holder can interfere with the RAM as I have a TRUE along with both clips and holders. Clips work best as they hold the fan closer and can be modified (bent just right so the tension holds still) to not interfere with nearby objects if that is a problem. Also, I got a slimmer fan (120mm x 20mm Yate Loon) and that helps out too, but that doesn't help out with the holder, just the clips. Also, when installing, you can move the heatsink around a tad before tightening it completely as there's more than enough surface area on the base to cover the i7, so you can move it back a tad if you need more room on the front end. If you're using 2 fans, then the one on the backside has more room and no RAM heatsink fins, etc. in the way there so it doesn't cause any problems.

    I would like to mount a noctua NH-U12P SE1366 on bloodrage, but i'm perplexed on the area between the noctua's fan and the first ram slot, because some rams have the heatsink fins (such as carsair dominator or csx diablo 2000).
    So do you know incompatibility about that?
    It would be interesting to know the distance between the socket and the first slot of ram in order to calculate the height useful

    Thank you..and sorry for my tremendous english...

    ilsant0,

    When I get home tomorrow I will measure from the edge of the socket to the first RAM slot for you unless someone here does it first.

    I installed a TRUE with a 25mm thick fan. The fan hits the ram and I hope this won't cause too much of a problem in the long run. Gonna mod the fan a little bit so it wont push the ram.

    How much is it pushing the RAM? Also, do you have a fan on the other side of the TRUE and if not can you move the fan to that side?

    Obviously the RAM slots were placed way too close to the socket - guess they figured everyone was going to use the stock Intel HS.

    @Touge180SX: it really doesn't push the ram much. I managed to move the fan a little higher so the fan and the ram barely touches, but I think its still too close for comfort. Oh yeah, I do have another fan in the other end. Its in a push-pull config.

    Used to have 38mm thick fans there in the same config, but that was when I was testing a set of Quimoda (Aenon) ram. Wanted the use that config but as you can see, it's not possible. Changing the orientation of the TRUE would really render it useless...

    You can see that there is a very small clearance now. Just barely...



    Obviously the RAM slots were placed way too close to the socket - guess they figured everyone was going to use the stock Intel HS
    Maybe they have their reasons for doing so. Looking at the stock hsf of the i7-920, i'd think the clearance would be still be small.

    Edit: Above setup killed the ram in the 1st slot. Praying the motherboard is still fine.
    Installed the ram in another computer and ran memtest, errors galore.
    Any suggestion for another air cooler for this motherboard ('cept for stock that is) or use a 120x20mm fan like what Eidos is using http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...7&postcount=35? A friend in Japan uses a Scythe Mugen2 and is having the same problem.

    omg...im afraid for your ram...
    howhere thank you for the photos.

    i had the suspect of this iusses on this mobo...the ram slots were placed too close to the socket... so the heatsink o simply aircooler fan will generate a big incompatibility list...
    I like the noctua NH-U12P SE1366 ill use it on my bloodrage, but i dont' know is will be present the same your problem about first ram bank...




    More photo for this particulary situation?...

    Thank you very much!

    I'm waiting that my bloodrage arrive me, but I dont know yet what kind of aircooler take for it

    @ilsant0: Below is an interim solution, until I can find a permanent one. Not the best solution I know, but will have to do for now.



    Spent the whole day trying to figure out why it wont boot on x64 with 6GB of ram. Darn G15/16 bios'es...

    Yeah, I'm still using the G13 BIOS as I find it the most stable.

    As for the RAM slots problem, and I know this is not an excuse, but I think the guys over at Foxconn where expecting most people who purchase this board would be on water. Still a problem though!

    Concerning the TRUE w/2 fans and the bad RAM, was the fan closest to the first slot RAM mistakenly in the direction to move the hot air from the heatsink onto the RAM? I was looking at the pictures, and I couldn't tell if the way the fans were set up whether the airflow was from RAM to heatsink to rear exhaust fan, or somehow things got reversed so that the TRUE fan closest to the rear exhaust fan was moving air from the rear exhaust area and moving it onto the RAM.

    The reason I ask is that most other pictures I've seen of the TRUE are with one TRUE fan pointing towards the case bottom, and the description is that air is moving from the bottom of the case through the heatsink and out of the top of the case with case fans (like on the Cosmos). I've got the same Thermalright fans, and if I match that fan orientation, and then reverse it for the second fan, that reversed fan looks like your fan closest to the RAM. If their airflow is from bottom of the case to the top of the case, then a reversed fan at the top would be moving air toward the top of the case, which in your case means it would blowing hot air into your RAM.

    Anyway, maybe you have the right fan orientation and your first slot RAM error was caused by vibration? Your fan orientation would be helpful to me since I have the same motherboard, heatsink, two of the Thermalright 1600 fans with the plastic holders, and I'm trying to figure out which direction to face the fans to move the air from RAM to heatsink to the rear exhaust fan (since the east-west heatsink orientation covers the first slot).

    Moving the fan up and away from the first RAM slot looks feasible. I'm also considering forgoing the second fan. One review I read of the single-fan TRUE is that it was very close to the cooling of the 2-fan Noctua, so that's why I got the second fan, thinking then the TRUE would be as good or better. But maybe a single fan would be worth the slightly decreased cooling (and it would reduce noise, too), since maybe moving the second fan up decreased the effectiveness of the second fan anyway.

    Thanks!

    Two reasons:

    1. That makes for a shorter path between the CPU and the RAM. Hell, they even removed the second RAM bank for that reason.

    2. I think their idea was for people to use mainly watercooling.
    Why you ask? Well, take a look at the design of the new NB block compared to the BlackOps block, its a difference of night and day.
