What about water cooling? Kidding of course

Should provide excellent cooling, I've heard a lot of good things about it, especially since you're going with the all copper one.

Hmm, you may infact be right. These damn heatsinks these days are getting ridiculous when you have to take precise measurements just for a heatsink... Couldn't tell you though man, I've heard that thing is a freakin monster, and you really don't get a feel for its size until you actually see it

Yes its big but on my motherboard it fits no problem, actually on most motherboards it fits quite nicely, it's not like it's a sqeeze to get it in. However that motherboard could definitely provide a problem. The spot for the CPU on that mobo is right near the edge, I've never seen a mobo like that myself, interesting layout. I was going to suggest the 92mm version of the zalman fan but on that mobo maybe even that will be a stretch lol.
