Scythe Infinity Conroe HeatPipe CPU Cooler
The cooler was not the easiest to install due to it's sheer size. The press-in clips were easy to use but hard to get to as the cooler obstructs them somewhat.
The fit is kind of tight, but I had no problems getting the cooler to fit on the board at all. I will say that you should check that the pins are in securely as I had to reseat the cooler after one came slightly loose.
The cooler dominates the board. Fitting the fan was very easy and I won't insult your intelligence by going through this.
Just enough clearance by the OTS Heatpipe solution used by Abit on this board. Note that I set the fan to blow though the heatsink, OTS solution and out of the rear exhaust.
It looks like it should be a tight fit in a case, but it is actually not too bad. Please ignore the wiring in my test setup.
There were no clearance issues in the case at all, even when I test fitted a 7950GX2 (as in the above picture). You can see that the positioning of the cooler only aid extraction through the top and rear fans in this case. The P180b has decent airflow, with an added front fan so this should not be a problem.
