Im building up a new AM2-based computer with the AMD black edition 6400+ which obviously will need adequate cooling.
Ive got an asrock AliveNf6g-VSTA motherboard, but Im having problems with the zalman CNPS7500-Cu LED fan I bought.
Basically, the bracket that came supplied with the zalman is square and the the one already on the asrock board is a rectangle, making it impossible for me to put on the new one.
I thought I'd try putting the fan on the old bracket anyway, and it appeared to fit the bracket; however the bracket is not high enough to be able to screw it back to the motherboard, let alone have a CPU under it!
Can anyone recommend anything? IE If I do need to buy a new cooler (likely) does anyone know of one that will fit on the motherboard, but still be adequate for the processor?
Thanks in advance
