Asus P5Q-E and Zalman CNPS9500A can't fit, help! Tags: Heatsinks Asus Zalman Overclocking Last response: February 27, 2010 12:36 AM in Overclocking Share joelgomez February 26, 2010 5:24:14 AM Hello, I saw somewhere on the net that the Zalman should fit the P5Q-E, but after hours of work, it is just impossible, the clip hits either capacitors or heatsinks. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Specs are now at: Q6600 @ 3.20 GHz (8X400) at 1.29V CPU voltage TEMPS: Idle - 32C, Prime 95 100% Load - 57C Room Temp is at 72F So far so good. Did 3 hours of Prime 95, no errors so far. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
