This should probably belong in the cpu cooling section of the forums, but I wanted to ask this question here in this motherboard forum in case anyone out there with the same motherboard as me is running an upgraded cpu cooler.

If you have this AM3 motherboard, then you already know that the ram slots along with the heatsink for what looks like a chipset are extremely close to the cpu socket. I am basically looking for an upgraded cpu cooler that would fit and still allow me to use all 4 of my ram slots which are all in use right now to give me a total of 8gb of memory. If there is anyone out there who has upgraded coolers with this motherboard, i'd love to know what you got.

Thanks!

Sorry I didn't reply yesterday, but yes, the fan hangs over the slots but they are all easily accessible

Thank you so much for your reply! I will add these onto the very short list of coolers I am considering.
