hi,
I have just put a Gammaxx 400 cooler onto my AMD Socket 4 CPU. I have a very large full size case, yet the cooler still pokes beyond the top of the case by about 1/2 inch. I'm not sure why they built the cooler quite that tall. Anyway, fortunately my case has a little hatchway over the CPU that I was able to unscrew and open up so that the lid still fits back on.
But this is a living room HTPC and having a big hole is not quite the look I was going for. Is there any kind of accessory I can put over the hatch to cover up the hole that will still leave enough room for those copper protuberances on the cooler? I wish I could attach a photo
My cooling needs are not vast, I just bought the Gammaxx because it got good reviews.
Thanks.
