I bought the A7M266 since all of the previous A7-series were compatible with the MC462. However, it seems that the A7M266 has an extra capacitor. Has anyone dealt with this configuration? I am currently asking Swiftech and CoolerGuys about this. I really do not want to return it and trade off for the 370 model which I think will fit since it's dimensions are 2.5" x 2.5" as opposed to 3" x 3" for the 462. Just haven't measured as I am still fuming over this predicament. I had received the hsf before the mb. :(

Any help would be immensely and truly appreciated! :p
