I'm running a mcw30 swiftech chipset block on mine,it was tight but seems to work ,

My rough measurements put the pin distance about 1-1.5 mm wider than the widest the MCW30 is specced for. Probably doable. I haven't ordered an MCW30 yet (seriously thinking about it), but if I did, I'd probably use some thick rubber washers on both sides of the motherboard when mounting it. Then again, I haven't actually put a block on the board yet. It might not be that big of a deal.
