    What S939 coolers are...

    Better then the AMD retail one for cooling and look good for a windowed case with UV lighting?

    Must not be one of the ones that require you to change the heatsink/fan retension cage on the motherboard.

    TIA

    Why don't you want to change the retention clip?

    Imho, I think the xp120 looks the best but i'm biased

    The Thermaltake Big Typhoon is supposed to perform very well, is almost silent, and has a nice big orange fan that would look good in a windowed case.

    I'm running the FX-57 "heatpipe" cooler on both my AMD 64 3500+ based system. Cracking cooler, great performance and they also have fans that are a doddle to remove and change for "UV or LED" ones like I have

    Its also VERY easy to clean - simply remove the plastic casing holding the fan on but gently prising the sides, and voila - get an old toothbrush and dust down

    Because all the ones I've seen so far use an X shaped peice of metal on the back that the retention bracket screws into......there are normally very small components where this sits and it makes me feel uncomfortable having a backing plate being pulled tight against these components.

    I see it supports Intel chips as well, which makes me think I will need to change my retention mechanism and the TT website says nothing about installation......do you know if it comes with s939 retention clips or does it still require you to make your motherboard accept intel designed heatsinks?

    The bracket needed (if your mobo doesn't already have one on the back) is of a plastic variety and that's just to spread the load.

    The plastic retention bit round the cpu comes with most good hsf as it needs to be screwed on. I would rather have a bracket on the back of the motherboard spreading the load than put the life of the cpu cooling in the hands of plastic clips.

    I had to buy a Arctic Silencer 64 just for the rear bracket as the asrock dual-sata2 doesn't have one even though it's in the amd spec

    I've not used one myself, but according to this review the BT uses the regular AMD64 backplate found on most motherboards: http://www.xtremecomputing.co.uk/rev...?id=134&page=5

    for what it's worth - custompc magazine did a review of the Gigabyte GH PDU21-MF-G Power (in scan under the multi CPU coolers) - supposed to be v.easy to fit on s939 boards with v.good performance. will be upgrading to a s939 platform soon and thinking about getting this one...
