Maybe try one of these? I roughly measure the base of the SB cooler on my P965 version to be 32mm square and I think the one on my P35 is the same dimensions. The Zalman is 37mm square so it might take a little creativity. Also the mounts are fully adjustable so no worries about it lining up.

Just a thought.

I'm not sure I see how the hr-05 SLI would not work on this mobo. Can you give us some details from the email they sent you as to why it won't work? I had a quick look at the drawings on their site and everything seems OK, though I thin you'd lose the use of a PCI slot or two.

I wrote my post in a poor way. I meant that my Enzotech SLF-1 did not fit my MoBo, so I was unhappy about that and I did not want to try the HR-05 SLI because of the response from TR:
Hi, Paul
HR-05 SLI/ IFX would be pass with 8800GTX.
But if you use the original heatsink on 8800GTX, it may block with the mounted bracket of HR-05 SLI/ IFX.

So I am not quite sure what to make of that. Maybe they want me to buy the HR-03 to cool my 8800gtx while I am at it?

I am going to RMA my SLF-1 and try to get the HR-05 SLI. We'll see if that works...

Again, thanks for all your help and suggestions everyone!
