master Air Maker 8 mobo heatsink clearance

Recommended Posts

hey everyone. I want to get the Master air maker 8 to replace my Tx3 with dual fans. I run an FX-8350 on an MSI 990FXA Gaming AM3+ Motherboard and it has tall heatsinks on the chipsets. Will the MAM 8 clear tall chipset heatsinks? Here is a picture for reference with my Tx3 installed. 

 

Thanks in advance

I use Mushkin Blackline DDR3-2133 with the Frostbyte heatsinks. Dual channel kit. 16GB in total. I'm not worried about RAM heatsink clearance. My board has plenty of space. I'm worried about the tall heatsinks on the chipsets surrounding the CPU socket. The red and black heatsinks in the pictures.

Well I went ahead and ordered it. I will have it today. I'll post pics so people know how well it clears tall chipset heatsinks on AMD high performance gaming motherboards. I won't be able to vouch for Intel as the AMD brackets sit the cooler up higher.
