Zalman NB47J and X1900XT question

    I have an Asus A8N-E mobo and want to get an X1900XT card. I have also installed a Zalman NB47J chipset cooler and was wondering whether the X1900XT would fit my motherboard.

    Thank you in advance

    Looking at pictures only it seem the fat cooler of the X1900 extends about an inch further back from the rear end of the PCI-E connector (if you take the end with the DVI connectors as the front). And on the mobo the gap between the back of the connector and the Northbridge heatsink is roughly the same, so you may *just* get away with it.

    Wouldn't want to say for sure though as it seems like a very close call! Try and drop OcUK an email and maybe they can help you out :)
