Hello,

I am planning my new build to buy next week or the week after. I have heard that the Z77 Sabertooth http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... and the Intel liquid cooler http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1683... are not compatible due to the capacitors blocking the circular ring. Does anybody know if this is true? If they do not fit, what would you recommend as a closed loop liquid cooler for a similar price?

Thanks

The OP probably figured this out by now, but it would have helped me for somebody to reply, so to confirm.

The Intel Liquid Cooling Solution works perfectly with this mobo, there is no fitment issue with the capacitors because the actual circular section is elevated slightly so it fits fine.

ANY watercooling block that lies near flat on the board and it wide won't fit with the capacitors so make sure it has an elevated design or a small block :)
