Hi peeps, I'm a new user in here but an old goat in PCs and system building
I'm having a small problem and am after some advice, many thanks in advance for any help offered.
I bought an ASUS P8P67, i2500K, 2x4Gb Corsair Vengence, and a Frio to refresh the heart of my old 775 build. The Frio didn't allow the memory to fit, and on closer inspection of the thermal gloop it didn't sit squarely on the CPU but sat on the capacitors along the VRM edge of the socket. I RMAd the Frio and got a Corsair H60.
The H60 also sits on the caps and doesn't seat on the CPU. The vendor wont allow the RMA as the supplied layer of gloop on the base of the H60 is no longer perfect, so I am RMAing the mobo instead.
Am I missing something here or doing something so remarkably stupid that my membership of this fine forum will be removed once my error is laid plain for all to see such that I wil not further embarrass myself?
Given that I am now keeping the H60 is there a P67 or Z68 mobo that the H60 is known to fit? I don't want to spend a fortune (hence the P8P67), and I don't need any of the functions that the Z68 provides over the P67.
Again many thanks for your help
