I'm looking for a new heatsink to go on my GA-X48-DS4. Its in a mid case so the power supply is basically right at the top of the board. I also have 4 dimms of ocz reaper memory which has very tall heat sinks. I am looking for a fan heatsink that sits in a parallel plane to the processor, such as an thermaltake orb. If you have this motherboard what heatsink are you using.
The chipset heatsink and ram comes close. There isn't enough room for a large heatsink to fit unless you use one with good ground clearance, rising above the northbridge heatsink and ram banks. Of course, there are small heatsinks, but they don't cool as well.
It should be easy to recognize good ones by their picture. Long neck of heatpipes connected to wider fins above. Most popular models use this setup.
