greetings all,

i have been looking for a good FSU to cool my cpu and have not been able to find one that is better than the stock. i have a P4 3.2 ht on a MSI 865 PE NEO2 P 478 MoBo. i play some multi player games online that are real taxing to my system and cause it to get real hot. it gets up in the high 60C's sometimes...not good. it's never shut down but i am worried what the heat is doing to the system's future. anyhow i've purchased a couple new FSUs and sent them both back one wasn't compatable and one sucked. anyone know of a good one to get for my issue?

thanks,
E.Pope

why is it that they aren't compatible?

the website seems to think they will fit.

they show a little video of it being installed on the three main socket types, and your socket style is there....


i don't see how there's anything it won't fit.

my motherboard is an MSI 865PE NEO2 P 478 board. it is not compatable with the cooler because of a heatsink on the board that stands about 2 inches high off the board near the cpu...i bought one thinking it would fit...here's the list of boards that are not compatable for what i had...

ok, that's exactly what i was wondering, i guess it won't fit everything.

it's a shame it won't work though.
