Default Compatible?

Okay, first of all, I have this motherboard comming:
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16813136158
( DFI LanParty UT nF4 SLI-D )

And I have the ThermalRight XP-120 which fit my old Gigabyte K8NSNXP-939 fine. However, I'm scared if it is going to fit this DFI...

I have SCOURED google for anything I can find, and to no luck. I did find DFI's compatability chart but my board is not listed as 'Okay' or not.

You guys have any ideas? the SLI-DR Expert fits, but I dont think thats exactly the same measurements as mine. Anyone have this board by chance?

Thanks for your help, I dont want to invest in a new HSF...

It should fit, as long as you dont fill all 4 ram slots

There is a image of it covering the first two DIMM slots.

First page, first 8 results: http://images.google.co.uk/images?q=...=Search+Images




And there is enough room for 4 sticks of ram:

Dj and Trifid thank you very much. I didn't think about the image section of google but i must have read about 4 bagillion reviews...

But, that HSF is recommended to be oriented in the fashion that it would be blocking that one Ram slot... But using the two secondary shouldn't hurt I dont think.

Thanks so much guys, this was big on my mind.
