  1. If anyone is interested to know, I managed to get my 2 Noctua NH-D9DX-i4-3u's seated. I had to slot/interweave the fins together outside of the case and then lower and fit them sorta as "one" heatsink.
  2. Tis certainly a thought to consider, but I can't think of how I would do that without bolting it to the lid of the case (it's fairly crammed for space as it it). Will keep this as a last resort though
  3. Unfortunately my case doesn't have anywhere to mount radiators, not even a 120 rad.
  4. Thanks for the suggestion, I shall check this out. Will also measure the socket size when I get home from Work.
  5. Hey all, I have the following mobo: ASUS-Z9NR-D12 CPU's: E5-2470-V2 I'm struggling to find two CPU coolers that will fit in such close proximity to each other and to the DIMM slots. I have tried fitting my 2 Noctua NH-D9DX-i4-3u's, but the fins of the heatsink overhang into each other. I have also tried my two Dell-T420-Heaksinks, but the base of the heatsink overhang... At the moment, I have 1 of the Noctua's fitted, and 1 of the T420 heatsinks, with the Noctua exhausting into the Dell... less than ideal. The height of the coolers is not really as issue as my case is 4u, it's just the width that I'm struggling with. Does anyone have any suggestions for coolers that would fit?
