In a few weeks I will be getting my Asus Striker Extreme mainboard... The cooler I have now is the Scythe Infinity. Anyone have any idea if this will fit?
I found some information @ a website... but I'm still confused...
The website says:
"While the area around the CPU socket is clear and there’s plenty of room to install more exotic cooling solutions, the layout of the heatsinks surrounding the CPU socket will prevent some of the larger heatsinks from fitting on the board without modification. If your heatsink is wider than 103mm less than 35mm from its base, there will not be room. "
My cooler's Overall Dimension: 125x116x160 (WxDxH)
You still have the heatpipes, but yeah the fins are lower on a Inifinity. If you cant find anyone using it, get the mobo and measure, then order.
Yeah.... but the thing is that I allready bought the Infinity and I have like 1 week to return it to exchange it for another.... while the Striker is to arrive end of this year (Pre-order here in Holland)
So when I wait till the striker is here, I'll not be able to return the infiniy... so that will cost me money
