Hi guys.

Read some reviews that many boards dont fit these heatsinks and would like clarification on what ones fir this board. I dont really want to bend any capps, so would like one which fits out of the box so to speak.

Cheers

947 does as well with a very simple mod. You just have to grind off one of the tabs on one side of the mounting bracket. Took less than a minute.

Oh 800U is good to go as well out of the box. Stick with one of the U series if possible and use the mounting holes. You don't want to rip your socket off.

Ahh thats good to hear peeps. I was thinking the 92mm fans would be best, but the 800's only support up to 80mm dont they?

gazflat44, have you checked out the SP-97? It's basically an SLK type heatsink with heatpipes (blkgti posted a pic ^). It will support a 92mm fan.

the SLK-800, 900, and SP-97 are all awesome heatsinks. But keep this in mind. Bigger fans are not always better...

I had a 92mm tornado on my 900A and the temps were actually 2C higher than they were with the 80mm tornado. I guess the deadzone was just that much greater on the 92mm.

Bearing in mind im in the UK, and only the SP-94 is available with lead time of 4-7 days.

Like i said, we dont have the SP-97 or at least I dont know where sells it. I am available to get:

SP-94 (4-7 days)

SLK-947U (out of stock)

SLK-900A (4-7 days)

SLK-900U (In stock)

This site shows 4-7 days everyday i visit so dont know wether they ever get any. The 900U is from a different store but is on stock.
