Ok, no CPU wars. How about chipsets. Intel is the one that determines that capacitor row. It is difficult to change that row for engineers unless they want the board to have traces even longer than they are now. With any incremental increase of the trace can cause major fluctuation. So, you see it is a cpu issue. Look at all the 775 chipsets. All the ones that have good specs will all have such a tight row. If you really knew what you were doing you would know that almost any cooler will work including vapor systems. Tilt the board sideways and it will be obvious! The only systems I know that wont work is cascading, DI, or LN2 because of the inefficiency of the capacitors at those temps unless there is serious insulation as the 7.22Ghz was in. There's brackets for just about anything. If your limited by what people tell you, you may just own an intel. I hope this answers your questions fully and there wont be a need to question people who are just trying to help you with comments like "bigbadbns, this thread was mainly for people who have P4N's and know exactly what will fit".
I dont know what I am doing? I didnt come in insulting anyone, I am asking for some simple information. If you are going to be a jerk to me, then dont reply. I never said anything really about the capacitors. If you would have read what I said, and maybe looked at a few reviews of the board you would find out that even the stock hsf that comes with an Intel Pentium 4 LGA775 socket CPU just about touches the hsf for the northbridge. This is what my concern is. It seems it is YOU that doesnt know what they are doing or even talking about. Now stay out of my thread.
