maybe, but really, they don't go all that well for that much heat. Get an alpha pep66t and mod it to fit on your board, a swiftech, globalwin, or even better one of the many new all coper heatsink such as the CAK 38 from Globalwin. Those should cool that bird really well!

Yeah you will have to mod the S-Orb to fit a KT7A and the clip is so tight on those darned Orb's that they have crushed many a T-bird. They cant really keep up with the current high speed T-birds. They just run so hot you should look into a better HSF. Alpha, Globalwin, Taisol to name a few.
