[quotemsg=15943910,0,1922137]I dont get it ,
Did you use the Seidon 120V cooler to test this mobo or not ?[/quotemsg]No, it was out of stock everywhere I shopped.
[quotemsg=15943910,0,1922137]and haven't you noticed that that Seidon 120V bracket is actually the AMD bracket ?[/quotemsg]No, it's Intel's narrrow ILM bracket. The holes are spaced differently.
[quotemsg=15943910,0,1922137]which means that you can use ANY cooler that is AMD compatible here ? the same holes ?[/quotemsg]No, most AMD coolers are not compatible. But a few that have legs hanging from a raised bracket, such as the Seidon 120V and certain Corsair models, might be flexible enough to squeeze into place.
[quotemsg=15943910,0,1922137]the Seidon 120V specs does not say anything about narrow 2011-3 sockets , actually that special bracket is the AMD bracket.[/quotemsg]No, it's an Intel Narrow ILM bracket. And those didn't change between 2011 and 2011-v3. Actually, neither did the square ILM bracket.
[quotemsg=15943910,0,1922137]so TRY amd brackets on this motherboard PLEASE.[/quotemsg]I did. They didn't fit.
[quotemsg=15943910,0,1922137]here is a link for the Seidon 120V installation manual[/quotemsg]What good will that do me if I don't have a Seidon 120V?
[quotemsg=15943910,0,1922137]as you see that second bracket the AMD ONE is the same supplied with the Motherboard for the ILM, which means the screws places are compatable between AMD and ILM 2011-3[/quotemsg]I just checked, the screws are different too.
[quotemsg=15943910,0,1922137]PLEAAAASE try all the coolers you have and see if they fit on this mobo using the AMD brackets. use the AMD brackets that comes with the coolers. and try Noctua coolers too.[/quotemsg]I did that before I wrote the article. Persistence only makes you right if you're a pandering politician.
[quotemsg=15943910,0,1922137]and more over :
try to test please the Asrock itx mobo that comes with Quad channel SOdimms , you can Ask Asrock to supply the SODIMMS DDR4 for you.
and if you want to buy them , they are available in the market already ..
here is a direct link to Crucial USA
OK, I'll tell them you asked.
