Windows 7: Swiftech H220 incompatible for some ASUS dual mobos

Swiftech H220 incompatible for some ASUS dual mobos

PLEASE USE CAUTION - Certain ASUS dual-CPU motherboards may not be compatible with the Swiftech H220 CPU cooling Kit; the pump/waterblock dimensions may be too large. With regard to the ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS motherboard specifically, the H220 will NOT fit between memory sticks or the heatsinks adjacent to the 2011 sockets. If in doubt on other dual boards, call Swiftech for an exact distance that each protruding right-angle hose elbow on the pump extends past an imaginary line drawn between the mounting screw hole centers in the mounting plate. Then measure the distances between any board components adjacent to your sockets and the imaginary line drawn between the centers of the mounting screw holes on the board. When in doubt, following this procedure may alleviate RMAs, return shipping costs, and frustrations.

That's unfortunate, as Socket 2011 is a perfect candidate for a more robust water cooler. Maybe Swiftech will come out with a solution soon for those folks. If it were any other company I would say you are probably on your own, but it is Swiftech so there is a reputation to uphold.
