    as you can see its a tight fit and it can't go the other way round "On my particular motherboard (Asus K8N-E Deluxe), the XP-120 could only be installed one way (to avoid hitting the row of capacitors behind the CPU socket)"
    i allso have the same ram as he has :eyebrow: , so what i want to know is it a good fit or a bad fit? i have 1GB of ram so i don't thing i will need to use the 3 or the 1 ram slot. but what do you guys think :thumb:

    well if thermalright says it will fit, it will fit :)
    And as the air is blown down through it I can't see any reason why fitting it only one way round would have any disadvantages.

    As you can see you will only be able to use 2 sticks of ram with this heatsink. Also dosen't the memory controller get less efficiant with more than 2 sticks of ram?
