Yeah, I definately liked to know as well. I have a couple Aeroflows that I'd like to use for a dual setup.

Also does anyone know if there's any trouble fitting dual waterblocks for water cooling?

No problem with waterblocks.

You CANNOT fit two SLK-900's on the board.

The SLK-800U should fit, since it is the same size, just uses a different mounting mechanism.

The AX-7 will fit, but needs slight modification (just one corner cut off, or bent, so they will fit.)

The AX-7 for the socket that sits closest to the back of the case needs 2 fins removed while the AX-7 closer to the front of the case only needs one fin removed. Here's a pic of the former (I used a dremel-like bit for a regular drill; it wasn't a very clean cut but did the job):

hello, first post here...woohoo
anyway, I've got two Danger Den Maze 3 waterblocks on my duallie and they fit with a bit of room to spare. I'm also curious as to if anyone has a confirmation if the 800U fits or not cause I'm planning on switching back to aircooling.

Switching back???

I switched back about a year ago. Now, I'm kicking myself for selling all my watercooling gear.

Why do you want an SLK-800U?

The SLK-800 is cheaper, easier to mount and works GREAT.

The only reason I can think of to get an SLK-800U is for a P4 system.

The fins on the U version are perpendicular to the ones on the non-U version. They airflow would be a lot better, especially where CPU2 blows hot air directly on your video card.

Actually, if you recall the AMD socket, the clips are along one edge, and the mounting holes along the other. So if you imagine how those two would attach to the socket, you'll see that it would be in different directions. I know I was surprised when I mounted my 800U and it went in a different direction than I expected.

I'm also thinking of using the SLK800U as I like the more secure bolt on mounting better. So the air flow is better with the U on the MSI K7D Master?

In my opinion it would be. With 800A's the air is blow in a direction perpendicular to the PCI slots, with the 800U's it would be parallel. One thing I notice in my dual is hot air from CPU2 blows straight down on the video card, and I can't OC it at all any more. If it was blowing the other way, it would just blow right out the exhaust fans.
