Not entirly sure if these will be ok together: Cooling: Thermaltake CPU Heatpipe X Intel S775, MOBO: ASUS P5GD1, CPU: Intel P4 530 (775). Plus I've never really seen these screw in coolers, only the clip jobbies.. the cooler looks like it could damage the mobo under its weight (ie when its in a tower case). I dont no.. just concerns me. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
That's not quite true....there are a number of heatsinks out there that are approaching a kilogram in weight and need special reinforced mountings fitting to the motherboard.I have one such cooler click here
Baboon Boy22,Thermaltake make quite a number of heatpipe cpu coolers.....which model do you have in mind? And if you are thinking of something similar to the one I use may I ask the reason you need such a cooler?
