  1. To be more specific. I would like to know if anyone can confirm that this cooler fits on the Asus P5e LGA775 Motherboard. Thanks in advance

    According to this, yes it will,
    the real question is at 165mm high, is there room in your case sideways?

    Thanks for the fast reply. By "fit" i mean will it not interfere with my northbridge heatsink?. This motherboard has quite a big heatsink over its chipset . I kn ow its compatible with the socket, but while i was reading some reviews of said cooler i came across one that said that in "some" boards there may be trouble fitting the entire cooler due to it being so big.

    Aah yup, re-reading your post it makes sense that way,
    It does look like you may have issues, unless an owner/builder can put in otherwise
    I reckon your options are
    try it, hope it fits
    if it doesn't, trim the fan body or nb fins till it does
    failing that Zigmatek coolers look to have better height clearance although you'd have to research them to find a 'good' one and I also saw this wierd beastie on the Egg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835220033&cm_re=775_cooler-_-35-220-033-_-Product
    hope that helps a bit?
