Nice read T
i975X isnt dead, the 8x 8x crossfire kicks the P35. i975X is a cheaper alternative to the X38 chipset, however with limited overclocking. Good review
You could use that in P965 too, I have same loops in mine. Some P35s seem to have loops too, so basically any NB with loops around them would do, wonder why they named it so. Of course the loops distance can differ a bit. If they had made other corner holes go the other way, it would solve all those problems and make it more universal.
My P5W-DH actually has the spaces marked on the motherboard for two other loop, and I have seen some of these boards where people have drilled out the holes and mounted some bent up paperclips through the holes. That gives a more secure mounting.
Also, (I hope this was evident in the pictures, but just in case) the mounting holes on the top of the block are slots, which makes it fairly adjustable. If you notice on the shots of the whole motherboard, the chipset is twisted clock-wise a little bit. I don't think that is a problem, but it just shows the flexibility in case there are differences in the distance between the mounting loops.
As for the name, the block is design with the Intel 975X BadAxe in mind. It just happens to be compatible with other boards as well.
Sweet review. Though it looks waaaaay too big to cover just a small little chipset core like that.
It should port over nicely to the X38 IHS!
they should make this for the 680i/780i
They do have a version for the 680i:
If the mounting is the same for the 780i, then it might work for that chipset as well. Contact Danger Den if you need verification.
