I haven't used that board, but I would assume it fits. I've used it on a couple of high-end boards w/ extravagant chipset cooling solutions (P5N72-T Premium, eVGA 680i SLI) and it fit fine, though it was a little snug against the Northbridge on the 680i SLI.
From looking at the photos on Newegg, the Northbridge heatsink appears to be the same height as on the P5N72-T Premium, so it should have ample clearance. The top heatsink looks kind of tall, but it's angled, so I think it would still clear, but I'm not 100% sure on that.
