Thermal Take Silent Tower

hello all,

I've just bought a Thermal Take Silent Tower cooler to find out that it
does not cover my AMD cpu completely. Around 2 mm stays outside the base.

I have a MSI K8N SLI main board, and comparing the pictures I can see
that this board has the raised part of the cpu socket next to the memory
banks (parallel to them). On the picture however, the cooler is
installed in a socket whose raised part is in the opposite side.

Does it means Thermaltake is not really compatible with all 939 socket
main boards ? Or are these 2mm of no importance ?

Thanks for the help.


Re: Thermal Take Silent Tower

Check the manuel and see if your board is supported. Try it out and look at
your temps. Otherwise I would recomend Thermalright xp-120.

The important bit is the core of the CPU, the little rectangle in the
middle. The rest is just a circuit board for the pin wiring.
