Cooler Problem

hello all,

I've just bought a Thermal Take Silent Tower cooler to find out that it does not cover my AMD cpu completely. Around 2 mm stays outside the base.

I have a MSI K8N SLI main board, and comparing the pictures I can see that this board has the raised part of the cpu socket next to the memory banks (parallel to them). On the picture however, the cooler is installed in a socket whose raised part is in the opposite side.

Does it means Thermaltake is not really compatible with all 939 socket main boards ? Or are these 2mm of no importance ?

Thanks for the help.

wpr.

  1. Is it designed to fit on 939 chips?

    My watercooled 939 has a waterblock which leaves around 3mm each side (top n bottom)

  3. Center the bastard over the CPU and tighten it down.
