790i Ultra Chipset Based XFX and eVGA Motherboards and CPU Coolers


These motherboards have very large NB heatsinks which restrict the usage of some CPU coolers.  This means that the CPU cooler cannot be installed without causing damage to either unit nor can it effectively cool the system.  The following incompatibles are not limited to the following and include a much larger subset.  Do not use CPU coolers that look like or have the same dimensions as below.


The following are CPU coolers we have had problems with.

The following are motherboards affected by this.
