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.

no dice, rotate it one way, it hits the NB and SB heatsinks, rotate it the other way, it hits the capacitors. ended up returning it and bought a Xigmatek Dark Knight S1283V which fits well.

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.
