FYI Scythe FCS-50 won't fit on the Fatal1ty AN8

FYI Scythe FCS-50 won't fit on the Fatal1ty AN8

I got my fatal1ty this evening and discovered that the scythe hsf won't fit on this board. It won't clear the ram or the otes fans on the rear of the mb. I had to use my arctic cooling freezer 64 which fits quite well so consider yourselves warned. I'm hoping that it will fit on the msi when the new one comes in or I'll have to rma it.

Well to update you the scythe does fit on the msi k8n neo4 plat and my sons machine idles at 87F with it on his 3000+ but I had to move the fan to the other side so it sucks instead of blowing. The freezer 64 doesn't make complete contact with the heat spreader since it's contact base is smaller so my temps aren't what I would like for them to be. My machine idles at 113F with the freezer so I ordered a scythe kamakiri hsf to replace it with since it's smaller than the fcs-50 and cools almost as well. I also got a tube of as5 so hopefully between the two of them I can get my temps down to where they belong.
