The caps look as though they'll be below the level of the heatsink base so I don't think that'll be too much of a problem.

The heatpipes on the other hand ...

I think DFI is mostly to blame for that.

supposedly the new gen. of digital PWM runs cooler than the earlier ones - abit's X38s are meant to be going onto them after they eschewed digital PWM on P35.

I`m sorry, but that mobo could outperform everything on the market - but unless I know some1 who`s practically tried it and it`s not been a physical pita, I wouldn`t touch it.

What`s with ganging things up around the cpu ? They reckon it`s nice and cool by there normally ?
