Will it fit: xp120 and a passive chipset cooler?

Any socket 939 motherboard that can handle a xp120 cpu cooler and a tall chpset cooler like the zalman ZM-NB47J (blue)?

Asus A8N-E is one. Here is a pic of the chipset cooler.

Abit AX8 already has a passive chipset cooler, the chip also runs much cooler than the NF4 ones, and it will fit the XP120, though DIMM #1 cannot be used.

Well, it's going to be fully populated (4 * 1Gb), so blocked DIMM slots won't do.

I'm using an Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe (though the standard should be the same) with a XP-120, NB-47J replacing the stock fan, and all 4 DIMM slots populated.

(BTW, it doesn't look like the XP-120 will miss the first DIMM, but it does. Barely.)

I've got a DFI Lanparty NF4 Ultra-D.

I'm using an XP-120, which misses the ram but probably blocks the first PCI-E slot (I'm not sure, since I don't have a card to try in there). I'm using a Zalman 47J on the chipset, which blocks any cards longer than the 16x slot in the 2nd slot. It also doesn't seem to be good enough for passive cooling, though I need to experiment more. I'm using a Zalman ZM-80D HP on my GeForce 6600GT which blocks the 3rd PCI-E slot and the first PCI slot, leaving me with one usable PCI slot.
