    I have a Gigabyte GA-K8NF-9-RH motherboard and was wondering if this chipset cooler would fit: http://www.microdirect.co.uk/productinfo.aspx?ProductID=11973
    The chipset is in the middle of the motherboard near the cpu and is in a diamond position i have also attached a photo of the chipset.

    It looks groovy and would look nice in my case with the clear side, also might give better cooling.

    My thought is no as yours only has 2 hold down pins plus the one pin is too close to that hold down clip .

    I think that it would probably be fine at £4.70 its worth a punt. It doesnt use clips it has thermally adhesive tape so the number of pins isnt relevant
