Default How to Tell if it Fits?

so i have an OCZ Vendetta 2 HSF, and i will be getting a new Mobo in about 2 weeks, and how do i know if the HSF will fit into the Mobo. From the looks of the HSF, the fan on the heatsink blows up.
For those that dont know, i am going with Intel.

Chances are you will be able to face it whichever way you want because of the way the Intel mounting system is designed.

If there will be any problem it'll be vertical clearance from v-regs near the cpu (the little black boxes) unless there is a huge special heatsink covering those you should be good.

The fins are quite high above the base. It should fit with space to spare on any board.

And you are using the backplate, right?

i meant the mobo, i will be using a friends XION Solaris Case as a temp, if i need a new case when i get the parts, then i will get a new case also.

i didnt know you can change the way it faces for Intel... is the 4 holes for the push pins a perfect square? i thought it was more of a rectangle...

i havent bought an retention bracket yet, but i will when i buy a PSU from newegg.
