    790i CPU Heatsink Compatibility List

    What fits and what doesn't? I couldn't use my Zalman CNPS8000 because of the shear size of the board's MCP sinks. I succumbed to using the Intel Stock HS/F.

    What has worked for you? I'll update the list as more options come. This will definitely help those of us looking for a solution.

    Intel Stock
    Ultra-120 Extreme

    Doesn't Fit
    Zalman CNPS8000
