large heatsinks and 8rda3+

Does anyone use a large heatsink such as Zalman on a 8rda3+?

The socket is almost on the top edge of the board, and i have a small case, so the power supply is almost sitting on the heatsink (about a half inch gap).

^^ very large image, sorry. This is the inside of my case, im not sure if id be able to fit this on there. Im planning on buying a Tsunami later this year, so i may just wait until i get that and get some more space between my blue storm and the motherboard, but i just want some peoples opinions on the 8rda3+ and larger heatsinks.

Hello Snipe,

yes, I have Zalman on my Nothbridge as cooling in combination
with an Thermalright 947U on top of them.
It's an limitedness construction. No space left.
Some of the top Zalman coller ribs are bended, to do that possible.

Enlarge than, by click on them.
The fan on the Zalman do not interfere, that is an addition for better
cooling results.
