Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H AMD 890GX and CNPS10X Extreme CPU Cooler

Hi everyone :hello:

I was looking to upgrade my computer and was looking to buy a

Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H AMD 890GX and CNPS10X Extreme CPU Cooler for use on a Phenom II X4 Quad Core 965 Black Edition. Unfortunately after a bit of browsing I've realised that the Zalman cooler tends to block out the first RAM slot on some motherboards!!! :(

Would anyone here know of any issues with the GA-890GPA-UD3H board? Or if there are any Gigabyte boards that have no issues with the cooler?

Thanks in advance to anyone who replies!

  1. Issues arise more from ram height/dimm intrusion and cooler base height then anything to do with the mobo.
