FM2 low profile HSF
 
I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a compatible "low profile" heatsink for the new AMD Trinity line (specifically the A10-5700). I'm planning to get the ASRock FM2A75M-ITX (Link).

I like the Scythe Kozuti but I can't figure out if it's compatible or not. Anyone know?

Thanks!

IIRC, the mounting system is the same for all AMD sockets since the 939 so anthing compatible with 939/AM/AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2 will work (withing the size constraints of component clearances (eg DIMM height) and case size.

Awesome good to know. It seems like it's compatible with the FM1 even though it's not listed on their website so hopefully the FM2 is fine as well.

Thanks!

A10 5800K on an FM2 Asus Board
 
I guess my cooler is the opposite of low profile. What are the benefits of going LPH?

Mine just fits into my case and I did have to take the tube off of the side panel that directs the air flow from the CPU to the outside of the case. I could not have used high fin RAM and a RAM cooler fan would be tricky to install.

My "hi" profile cooler does keep my system cool (circa 32/33 C). There are four 120mm fans in the case, plus two GPU fans and a PSU fan, and most of the time my system is darn near silent (except during boot up before the fan control systems kick in). It is a Cooler Master 212 Plus with extra fan - and although it did not specify the FM2 socket on the box, it fit without any problems or so I was told because I opted for the installation of the chip, cooler & ram when I bought the board and the main components - cost me $15 and I didn't have to buy the Arctic Silver ($12) so the installation and testing of these components at the shop before I took it home net cost was only $3.00. (That was a Memory Express if anyone was wondering)

There are no "benefits" other then it'll fit easier in a small ITX (or m-ATX) case. Nyteowl is mostly correct though, most designs will fit in most cases, except those funky horizontal ones, really. - Still, clearances should be labelled and double checked, it doesn't hurt!

I have an Asus E35m1-m Pro board that I'd like to add a my corsair h60 to. The problem is the heatsink thats there now has 6 mounting holes and covers 2 chips, the apu and gpu or whatever that. I havn't taken mine off yet but this is an image from someone who has:

Any thoughts as to what I can do there?

I'm curious as to why you want to watercool an e350 for?

I think you mean APU (CPU + GPU) and the chipset ;)

Why do i want to watercool it? No real reason, I have it sitting around so may as well use it. It only ever maxes out at around 40'C at full load with the stock heatsink modded with the fan from my stock i7 heatsink fan. It might be silly to do so but thats the point.

It's been done use a 2 swiftech chipset water blocks :) or a rasa block I think was the other way
