Is there a simpler way of taking the cooler off and on? Or do I have to take the mother board out again? Sad
Man I love this website, but I'm sure my wife hates it lol

It will surely fit and that's the idea; by being so close to the exhaust fan, the exhaust fan will improve the CPU Cooler capabilities.

I haven't played with an A70 in a while, but I imagine that you can simply un-secure it and rotate it without needing to take out the motherboard.

LOL, sorry, I don't have any tutorials on how to deal with the wife Tongue

quick update, the A70 does fit horizontal and with plenty of room once you push the fan by the ripjaw ram a bit higher, I was surprised! Just eyeballing it I thought it wouldn't fit.

I also did some experimenting and reapplied the TIM. I used less of the A70 TIM provided this time but with the direct pipe heat sink and the thick A70 TIM provided I had poor temps, this was a REALLY small dot in the middle of the CPU. After many applications with the A70 TIM I switched over to Arctic silver 5 and noticed that its thinner and spreads out much better with less amount. I finally settled on using AS5 based on its ease of use because it spreads more with less and I noticed that I got better Temps with the CPU fully covered than not having enough coverage. reading up more on the internets shows that the direct heat pipe heatsinks need a little more TIM than usual.

I also decided to play with the big boys and started OCing manually without using the motherboard presets, and wow what a difference. I'm now at 4.5@1.32V and my new temps are 28C idle-68C max with a quick IBT standard 5 pass. On prime95 my Temps are 62C-64C max. this is going to be my new 24/7 OC unless I get bored and start messing around with it more, but with the wife and the holidays...this might be it for awhile lol.

Generally for direct contact heatsinks you want to use more thermal paste.
