Come on man i need answers which are 100% sure i am getting the rampage extreme.

From the pics, the top PWM/MOSFET sink might be a tad bit too high for the TRUE...so possibly not if you're mounting it towards the exhaust. If it's blowing towards the top, then the blue DIMM slot might be in the way.

Ohhhh man you have just destroy my day.

I doubt very much it will mount vertically. But you may get away with it horizontally. There is some clearance for the RAM. I remember on my asus P5KE is was close but it hooked over. 30h6 who did a review with one as supergrover suggested may shed some light on this. Horizontal is not too bad though, I found very little difference in temps in a case that doesnt have top exhaust fan.

The trouble is you'll be bottlenecking the system with a TRUE given what that board can do. You might as well buy a lesser board if your not going to watercool the CPU. You can easily put together a Wc system for around $200 which will work very on a quad (see worklogs).

You KNOW the ANSWER.

You NEED NOT ask the question.

YOU just WANT TO DO what you want to do, anyway.

So, the TRUTH, wouldn't MATTER because YOU want what YOU want anyway, and want to HEAR what YOU want to hear. :dots:

There's only a couple of these boards in Canada so far, so probably no one on this forum has one other than 3oh6. It was suggested to you in your other thread about the same topic to post in the Rampage Extreme thread. I would not be basing whether I would buy a $400 board on whether a $80 HSF fit. I'd buy the board, then see what HSF will work.

Good luck with your build.

If you're looking for compatibility information for specific heatsinks from thermalright I highly suggest looking at their website.

I also agree with magictorch that it would be not in your best interest to air cool the system given its capabilities with a more advanced cooling system, you would not be getting the best value out of the motherboard if you want to cool the system by air alone.
