Hello,What heatsink/coolers will fit the ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3. Its not very clear on which ones will fit with out restricting the use of all 4 mem slots. The Scythe Mugen looks like it covers the first two mem slots. People say the hyper 212+will fit and do well. What about the Zalman CNPS9900A? Will that fit as well. I myself have the ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 mobo and have 4 sticks of ripjaws and have been using a cheap rocketfish until the fan died. I was getting a stable 31'c..I intend to OC the AMD 1090T 6x but want to be sure I have a good cooler. Im using a 932 HAF w/ plenty of ventalation. I tried the cheap P.O.C H80 and realy wasnt impressed as it crumbled apart. I haverr spent the past 4 months getting poor advice. Hope you can help

The ram on this MB isn't especially close to the CPU socket. A Hyper 212 Evo should fit just fine.

Zalman CNPS9900A will fit fine. So will most other CPU coolers.

Hyper 212 Evo has a nice price/performance ratio, and the ability to add a 2nd fan.

Thx so much for the input. The 212 evo looks just like the cheap RF I had on it before. Yes, I was very surprised that such a cheap Rocketfish coler worked god enough to kep it at 31'c.. I am not sure which one I will go with. But when I do I will give best answer when I try one or the other...Thx again for the fast response..

I notice that there are different models of the Zalman. I want to be sure that it wil fit on the am3 socket. I know my case is certainly large enough. I have a 932 HAF. There is minimal room with all four mem sticks in. Is there ayone out there that is using a ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 Mobo? with 4 sticks of ripjaws???

Great input. I read all of the configs and decided to go with ZALMAN CNPS9500A-LED 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler & GeminII S524 120mm. If one isnt good then the other should be ok..we'll see.
The 92mm may not fit but others are using it. I dont know if they are using al the mem banks. Thats why I got the s524 as well.
Thanks for all the input. Great answer to have me read the feedback...What a bunch of whiners in the feedback section.
Ill let you all know which one is the correct one. Shoprunner of course
