    I have an abit ic7 with a p4 2.8Ghz HT. I have removed the retail
    northbridge cooler and mounted a zalman nb32j passive heatsink.
    I'm worried about if there is enough space for a zalman 7000cu cpu
    coolear instead for the crappy intel retail cooler which is use now.
    If someone could take a picture or messure how much their zalman
    7000cu is outside of the p4 frame and how close both height and width
    it is to the northbridge chip.
    I've included pictures

    okay, I took a photo or two for you. the first one is a side view, slightly
    elevated off center, showing the cutaway curvature of the Flower fins on the
    underneath. The second, is the Flower installed on my IC7-G and you can
    clearly see that it overhangs the NB by quite a bit. No way for me to give
    you a good side elevation of the Flower installed to show clearance over top
    of the NB, sorry... I'm not going to disassemble the system THAT far!

    That's okey tom. I just wish I knew if the flower is high enough for
    the zalman passive cooler to go free form it. I have not seen how high
    the small part of the flower goes before it becomes really wide do you
    know?

    From the Top of the Fins to the surface of the motherboard as measured on a
    GigaByte GA-8INXP it is 2.7 in. The Height of the fins at the extreme edge is
    1.165 in. That would leave about 1.5 in above the motherboard surface to the
    bottom of the fins at their highest point above the motherboard. From the outer
    edge of the fin to the step in the fin is .25 in., from there it curves down to
    the bottom of the heatsink. From the center of the Zalman to the outer edge of
    the fins is 2.17 in. You'll have to do some math & measuring on your board to
    see if it will fit.

    About 1.5 in from center of heatsink to center of curve on fins.

    not without pulling the part back off the system and I'm not really
    interested in doing that.
