Default Samurai ZZ

Hi,

does anybody know if Samurai ZZ can be mounted in all 4 directions on an AM2+ Mainboard like msi K9N2G Neo ?
see MSI Global ? Computer, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Mainboard, Graphics and more
I'm asking because I want to use the Top-Flow of the Fan to have some Air-Exchange above the Chipset-Cooler.

A) The AM2 fastening Kit seem to allow only 2 mounting-directions ?
B) But is there a fastening clamp, similar to the standard AM2 Boxed-Cooler fastenings (2 parallel spings in parallel cuts through the entire cooler) that allow to mount the Samurai ZZ in the other 2 directions ?
C) Or is it possible to use the Socket 478 fastenings to get the Samurai ZZ fastened savely to the 4 plastic-finns on the edges on this Mainboards CPU socket?

D) Or which other Cooler can be recommended that allows quiet CPU Cooling on this Mainboard in a desktop housing (max hight 120mm) ?

Thank you in advance
Michel

Hello,

you can mount it in two mounting-directions. You cannot use other socket methods for your AMD system, only using VTMS clips for the AMD.
Alternative: The Zipang 2 is quite too and have a height ~ 106 mm. The Big Shuriken have ~ 58 mm in height. All of this coolers have the VTMS System without any tools and hassle and can be used in two mounting-directions. You can combine this with the CPU Cooler Stabilizer K8/AM2, if you want .
Here is one pictures from Samurai ZZ:

Default Mounting Direction

Can I mount all four directions on Socket LGA 1156?

How does the noise and cooling compare to Shuriken Rev. B on an i5 661 3.333Ghz. Would it be noisier or quieter and would it be cooler than with with Shuriken Rev. B?

if possible on motherboard, yes you can as Intel user

Samurai ZZ have more performance as a Shuriken, but Shuriken is a typical htpc cooler with low height.

Default H55n-usb3

I have installed the Samurai ZZ on the H55N-USB3. It is a good fit with regular size DIMS (I have OCZ). Decent clearance from the PCIe slot too. I am happy with it.
