Has anyone put an Enzotech Extreme-X CPU cooler on an ASUS M3A78-EM Motherboard? My case is big enough but I've heard clearance with memory is tight depending on the motherboard. I'm also looking at the Enzotech Type-X AM2 Retention Module for a more solid mount.

Unless you have extra tall memory with those big heatsinks that look like a comb you will have no problems.

It is usually a memory module with the extra tall heatspreader in the memory slot closest to the cpu that is the problem. Standard height memory is not a problem.

It fit just fine. I positioned the copper tubes away from the memory and big strips with heat sinks would have fit no problem.

I hope you made sure that it blows towards the back of the case.
