Now with Intel Z690, H670, H610, B660 LGA1700 motherboards, AMD X570S, X570, B550 Socket AM4 Ryzen motherboards as well as many more motherboards, new coolers, integrated share button and zoom function! Since 1999 we have been testing coolers and motherboards on OCinside.de and check which CPU cooler can be used for which motherboard. With the interactive Fit for Fan guide v4.0, you can find this out in just a few clicks by virtually fitting the desired CPU cooler on the selected motherboard. You can see which CPU cooler fits which motherboard and how much space is left for the rest of the components. You can also see what it costs, how good the test result is and listen to the sound of the fan. Enjoy the interactive fit for fan guide !
Just select the desired socket, motherboard and cooler.
Then click and hold the heatsink with the left mouse button and move the heatsink manually over the socket to the right position, or click on the new “Fit !” button to move it automatically. Now you should be able to see if the selected cooler / heatsink fan combination will fit on the desired motherboard.
After selecting the cooler, one can see a link to read the review, a link to get the price of each motherboard or heatsink and a button to play the fan sound to compare the fan noise.
Which heatsink fits on the motherboard and how sounds the fan of the cooler?
These questions will be answered by the new interactive fit for fan guide with fan sound audio samples. The interactive fit for fan guide has been updated and enhanced with new motherboards, heatsinks and some new functions. The cooler position will be adjusted automatically with the fit button and now you can listen to the fan sound of each cooler after the selection.
Who never heard about the fit for fan guide may need more explanation. Since the year 2001 ocinside.de already followed the question, which CPU cooler can be used for which motherboard. With this interactive fit for fan guide one can find out exactly this with a few clicks, by moving the desired CPU heatsink fan combination virtually on the selected motherboard.
The interactive fit for fan guide is a new development, which contains some Intel LGA 2066, LGA 2011-3, LGA 1700, LGA 1200, LGA 1151, LGA 1150, LGA 1155, AMD AM4, AMD TR4, AMD Socket FM2/FM2+, AMD Socket AM3/AM3+, Socket AM2/AM2+, Socket 939, Socket 754, also older Socket A motherboards and some HSFs for each Socket.
