Every support is appreciated and would help other users as well so please feel free to supply any useful compatibility tips, pictures.

Please note that this compatibility may not apply to all the motherboards as the manufacturer randomly tend to change the components (capacitors, condensers, etc) used for their motherboard without informing to the public. Hence, the height of the capacitors and condensers maybe higher depending on the production lot of the motherboard.

Does the Mugen 2 fit on a Gigabyte GA-EX58-Extreme?
I'm a little bit worried about the Northbridge-Cooler, which is quite big on that MB.

Hello coexe,

this is really difficult to tell from pictures - I would guess, that it should fit without any issues.

Kind regards,

you'll be glad to here that it fits perfectly.
but there are some downsides.

i mounted it with the longer side facing the ram-slots and the i/o panel.
this way the fan "only" blocks 3 of the 6 ram-slots. i guess due to tolerances it might be possible to get only 2 blocked. if you mount it the other way the mugen itself would block some slots.
however it is possible to install the ram before the installation of the mugen (or simply install the fan after the ram), even if you mount the fan on the side of the ram-slots there is no problem afterwards.
the bigger problem was the "silentpipe" which comes with the MB. although the mugen does not collide with it installed, it blocks 2 of the 4 screws. you might want to install the silentpipe before the mugen, but in that case you can't use one of the MBs mounting-holes and it might be a little harder to get the slot-end of the silentpipe to fit.
i did install the silentpipe afterwards, making it very tricky to get the screws into their holes under the mugen. it required some angle with the screwdriver which made it impossible to use the necessary force to adjust them firmly. so i switched to some very thin precision engineering tools and think i got it firm enough now.

after all, it is quite an odyssey on that MB and i would recommend ignoring the one mounting-hole on the MB so you won't get too annoyed. or you could just mount it the other way and ignore the problem with the ram-slots. whatever you choose, there is a downside to it.

one thing to add: my MB had no washers between the cpu cover and itself, so i just installed it without. i did see why they would be good to have but i hope gigabyte knew what they were doing.

Sorry for using BugmeNot to Login....

But I would only tell that Mugen 2 is full compatible with Gigabyte GA-X38-DQ6.
The Fan will block the first two RAM slots, but normal RAM falls into place.

For German:
Hier hab ich es etwas ausfhrlicher beschrieben....

my report:

ordered the mugen 2 and thought "well... 1400 rpm are not enough", so i ordered an extra ultra kaze with 3000 rpm. well, i didn't realize that the ultra kaze is much thicker than 25mm.
right when i got the two things i tried to mount the ultra kaze on the mugen 2.. -.- ofc it didn't work. i just had to be a little bit resourceful, so i used cable tie to mount the ultra kaze 3000 on the mugen 2 - fits perfectly.

my board:
evga 680i: mugen 2 is mounted facing the rams with the longer side, but the ultra kaze blocks two of my ram slots. i can use them and even change the rams underneath it, but they shouldn't be dominators or similiar
also the mugen 2 touches the nforce chipset cooler and somehow causes a short circuit on the board, so i had to put a piece of plastic between both cooler - it now works perfectly.

my tower:
coolermaster centurion 5: fits perfectly in the tower without touching the psu.

ve got the ultra kaze running with 3000 rpm and it's f*cking loud and i love it
now ive got 4x 120mm and 1x 80mm fans in my centurion 5 plus 2x wd raptor plus 2x wd/seagate 7200u/min plus a msi geforce nx8800 ultra, so u can imagine what noise the computer does ))

ps: e6850 @ 3,8 ghz @ 1,5 vcore @ 40° idle @ 60° load
4 gb kit black dragon series cl4 ddr2-800 @ 1066 mhz @ 5-5-5-15 @ 2,175 volt
and i'm sorry for my bad english
