    heatsink for p5e motherboard + stacker 832 case

    I have desperatly been trying to find the best heatsink for this combination with out having to take the side fans off.

    i was looking at the thermalright ultima 90, but i saw issues with needing to been the northbridge fins out of the way.

    can any1 suggest a really good one?

    going to be fitted on a 9450 and needs to be pretty quiet.

    thanks kindly

    Shouldn't have any trouble with the fins of the ultima90 clearing the fins of the motherboard heatsinks, what might cause trouble is the bolt on kit that holds the ultima90 down and the voltage regulator heatsink.
    Why thermalright didn't just use the same bracket as on the 120ultra extreme I'll never know.
    I had to trim the end of the barckets down to clear the voltage regulator heatsink on my MSI Neo2-FR

    As you can see here
    From overclockersclub.com, they had to mount it pointing up.


    A good shot of how much it overhangs when monuted pointing backwards, from dragonsteelmods.com


    Intrestingly enough the eairly review from Anandtech had the same mounting bracket as the ultra120extreme


    If you can get hold of the ultra bracket it does fit on the ultima90 and offers no problems with the Asus P5E.
    Or consider the Xigmatek HDT-S1283, it's come out of reviews well and there's at least 1 happy user on these forums (no unhappy users that I know of, just by the time it had come out most people already have aftermarket heatsinks)
    Computer hardware and software at amazing prices, available online from Scan Computers UK

    thanks mate very helpful!

    its knowing whether the xigmatek HDT-S1283 will fit on the p5e? or not? and in the case

    ok il look into seeing if i can get hold of the mounting bracket for the TRUE120 Extreme

    cheers

    edit : ok after some searching have discovered that the Xigmatek HDT-S1293 fits on the p5e no problems
    now to determine if it fits the case

    Umm would it fit into a stacker???
    did someone break reality when I wasn't looking?

    You do realise it's not a small case? and if a cooler will not fit in it then I doubt that cooler would fit in99% of cases.

    well its its is only 2mm shorter than the thermalright 120 extreme which doesnt fit in the stacker 832, this is due to the side fan bracket.

    Re: heatsink for p5e motherboard + stacker 832 case

    First I'd heard about that, as far as I was aware the CM stacker 832 is wider than the antec 180 I didn't think that side fan frame would make that much differnce.

    and now I've had a look I know other wise strange how all the reviews of the stacker 832 seem to not mention that and never try to put it back on after install there big cpu coolers

    EDIT: although saying that people have said there temps are higher wothout any side fans fitted than with them fitted
