Hello. I have the i915Pa-E AOpen motherboard, so given the design of that motherboard and how everything is placed, I want to know if the heatsink I want will fit! I'm hoping it will because I really need something better than a stock cooler! This is the heatsink...

Thanks, hope to hear back from someone soon.

Heya pomp! :whistling:

Your motherboard is socket LGA775, which the Thermalright SI-120 CPU Cooler you want to purchase will work with. Just when buying it, you have to make sure that you get the optional LGA775 RM Retention Bracket along with it.

Def. I know to get that optional retention bracket! :whistling: ... But I just hope it fits given the components surrounding the CPU..because there's the north bridge I believe by the cpu and it has a heatsink on it that's "kind of" tall.. lol.
