Need motherboard compatible with NorthQ Giant UFO Tags: Homebuilt Cooling Compatibility Motherboards Systems Product Last response: May 7, 2008 4:35 AM in Systems Share atmosfeer May 6, 2008 10:00:59 PM I'm looking to buy a new motherboard, and found that dp35dp suited my needs alright. I have a 2.13 GHz Core 2 Duo E6400 processor and a NorthQ Giant UFO mounted to it for cooling. Having I looked at the diagram in the product brief at Intel's website, I'm worried that my CPU cooler is not going to fit, as the chipset cooler is awfully close to the CPU socket: http://download.intel.com/products/motherboard/DP35DP/p... I'd hate to part with my UFO, so does anyone know whether it can fit on the DP35DP? If not, do you have a suggestion for a decent motherboard in the same price range where the cooler would fit? Other spec for suggestions Cabinet: Antec P182 GFX: GeForce 7950GT Memory: 2x1 GB PC6400 800 Mhz RAM as well.

Keeping it similar, I would suggest this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Or, going smaller and cutting out the graphics card for exceptional integrated graphics, this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... But I'm not sure if any of those boards will fit your cooler. The second one might, but it would be a tight fit. The problem is that many Intel CPU boards put the Northbridge (and its heatsink) right below the CPU socket. You're also putting it all in a rather expensive case to boot. You don't need something quite that extravagant This might be a little showy: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... This is a conservatively-stylish bargain and totally worth it: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... . I would suggest moving on from that cooler, going with the second motherboard above, and picking out a more reasonable case. But that's just me. Wait for other folks to put in their 2-cents as well, then consider what works best for you. Newegg.com is the way to shop. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
