Could someone be so kind as to tell me how much room there is between the heatpipe and the bottom (aka the agp slot) of the card? I'm afraid it won't fit because I slapped a HS on my southbridge ..

Thxies :)

An inch and a half should be about enough.
My SB is extremely close to my AGP slot .. I'm using an Abit NF7-S rev2.0, it's pretty tight.

Look at this nf7-s rev2 review

The reviewer uses a heatpipe (ZM80A-HP) with a heatsink (ZM-NB32J) on the SB. It fits but only just.

Have you done anything to your NB? Is the stock fan on there noisy? I'm considering a nf7-s v2 with a slk-900u but I read you need to do quite a bit of fin bending to fit on a ZM-NB32J :?

The stock fan is inaudible as far as I can tell. My other fans overpower it at least. I'll be replacing it with a zalman soon though. I have an SLK800A and it fits just fine .. just about enough room to fid the NB cooler I think (or hope).

Thanks for the review link!

well, i'll tell you if it fits when my nf7-s arrives from germany (I'm in Belgium)

The ZM-NB32J has already arrived but it came from a different shop.

btw: i'm also using a slk900u with 92mm papst fan (which i'm also waiting for :))

Euhm .. waarom koopt ge uwen NF7-S ni gewoon in Belgiƫ? :P. (tones.be bijvoorbeeld .. daar komen mijn zalmans ook van trouwens).

I wonder how much cooler a SLK900U is compared to a SLK800(A) with the same fan.
Then again, I'm not buying anything new until the Athon64's are unleashed.

Meeste delen vd pc komen uit Duitsland funcomputer.de , bleek goedkoper dan in belgie te bestellen. Ik heb ook enkele dingen van tones.be en graka en scherm van loveno.be ; beetje verspreid dus ;)
This is my configuration

They say the 900u is cooler because it has a bigger cooling area because you have the possebility (spelling...) of using a 92mm fan. Thats why the area for heat dissepation (spelling...) is bigger :)

Hope it makes any sense to you guys ;)

What about the fin orientation? On the nf7 the 900 has the fins pointing up-down and the 800 has them going left-right. I would have thought that it would be easier for air to flow along through the heatsink and out the case having them going left-right as with the 800. So maybe they work about the same?

Ah well, I'll just wait and see what the Athlon64 brings us ... new coolers for sure, but I don't know what kind of coolers obviously.

En euhm, da's ook een manier natuurlijk hehe :).
