Problem fitting a heatsink

  1. Hi there,

    I've got this motherboard:
    http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Overview.aspx?ProductID=2470

    and this heatsink:
    http://www.quietpc.com/gb-en-gbp/products/amdcooling/ninjaplus

    and the heatsink, when placed on the motherboard, is pushing out those capacitors on the top. The big heatpipes on the heat sink are the problem. I don't think I should have the heatpipes touching the capacitors anyway, because the pipes should get quite hot.

    Is there anything I can do about this, or should I just return the heatsink? Can someone recommend a better heatsink for this motherboard?

    I'm thinking of this Zalman one:

    Hope someone can help,

    Thanks
    Khusro
