Need help deciding air cooling fan Tags: Heatsinks Cooling Fan CPUs Overclocking Product Last response: April 19, 2012 1:55 PM in Overclocking Share may1 April 15, 2012 2:40:37 PM I recently bought a p8h61-m LE mobo. http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8H6... Problem is, as you can easily see from the pictures, there is very little space between the socket, RAM slot and the gpu slot. This means that I am looking for a cpu fan with length and width that will not exceed the size of the 1155 bracket. Does anyone know a good cpu cooler for this?

Also the PCIe x16 slot is the first expansion slot on the motherboard. (while a usual atx has a pcie x1 slot prior to this) This means the motherboard has about 2cm less clearance, so it's clear there will be a lot of compatability issues with larger coolers.
