I am planning on upgrading to p45 plat, and wanted to use the CCF 120 or 92 on this board. Sunbeam claims it will fit, but I have doubts, as a coworker told me "Its really big" and the northbridge heatsink on the board is bigger than RuPaul's hair.

Can anyone verify that it works 100%? I want to order today.

Thanks

I actually got a response from sunbeam CS within a day. He said it would work. I saw the same pic with the caps, it seems iffy, so that's why I was asking.

Update:
I got to installing my new parts this weekend. Well, it was a PITA. The clips on the heatsink were being blocked by the chipset cooling system, so I had to improvise. On the CCF, there are two tabs that push the clips onto the frame, which is mounted to the motherboard. I had to break one of the clips off, so it wouldn't hit the mosfet sink, but I still ended up having to bend the mosfet cooler section. Can't tell it's bent, but it means no return on the board if it breaks...

Temps at 3.6ghz with q6600 are 50* at load (3dmark vantage x 10 times). Nice. I like the board too, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a p45 board.
