HR-02 macho and 890GX extreme3

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I'm looking for affordable solution to cool my Phenom II X6 1055T.

This is the motherboard:

This is the heatsink:

I'm pretty sure there will be no issue, but there's no harm in asking, so, you guys think I will have any problems fitting the heatsink onto the motherboard?

As for RAM, I'm using a couple of these: http://www.corsair.com/memory-by-product-f...3m2a1333c8.html , though I kinda doubt I'll have any clearance issues with the heat spreaders.

 

I found this post while searching http://forums.atomicmpc.com.au/index.php?showtopic=43655

so I guess it's looking pretty good for me right now, but there's no definitive post apart from bnew confirming the purchase, so I can't be sure if he ran into any problems.

 

In case bnew or anyone else with the same combo sees this, how is it working out for you guys? Did you have to order different mounting brackets or trim anything?

Anyone have a different suggestion in that price range? The Scythe Ninja 3 drew my attention, but I'm hearing it's somewhat inferior.

 

Thanks in advance to anyone who helps out ;)
