Default Who has this Zalman cooler? Would it fit on my socket 754 board?

I'm looking into getting this Zalman HS&F, but am not sure if it will fit on my socket 754 setup.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118115

I am just wondering if it will clear my RAM, which is located horizontally only a about 1" up from the CPU. Here's a picture.

Yes it will fit in your case, but it might slightly cover the ram slots, because it is a 120mm fan. Just picture your 120mm green led fan you have there, over where the zalman would go. Wait, is that green led fan 120mm? It kinda looks like an 80mm.

Yes, the green fans on front and rear are 120mm. I was looking at those for comparison, and they look like they would hit the RAM. The thing about the Zalman, is it rises up a little. I wonder if it would raise enough to clear the RAM.

From the dimensions it says 136 x 136 x 67mm. So try measuring 67mm from the cpu socket, and see if it will clear. I think that a bit more than 2.5 inches.
