I mean, I'm pretty lazy but... Holy crap man. Get it together. Take the 30 minutes and remove your board, slap a quality cooler on there and keep that 2600k properly taken care of.





Or don't.

That's the problem; it didn't take 30 minutes.
It took me a good 5 hours to get the entire build together; and that's no exaggeration. Not to mention I almost scraped my motherboard to death against the back panel.
The reason I don't want to do it again, is because I don't want to run into the same problems that almost caused me to destroy my motherboard the first time.

Erm. Practice makes perfect? Really though, 5 hours? What was the hangup?

I swear on my life. The entire process did indeed take around that amount of time.
I honestly don't remember what the biggest problem was (there were many), but it had something to do with setting the motherboard pins down on the case's holes correctly. The line-up was fine, but actually getting them in there and screwing them down was a big problem for some reason.
The other big problem that happened simultaneously was keeping the little cushion-like-covering for the back panel (the USB and audio ports on the back-side) in the right position while I laid the motherboard in correctly.

There was this little tension-wire on the one end of the cushion-plate-thing that was pushing against the motherboard, causing it to become mis-aligned. However, if the cushion did not have pressure against it, it would fall down and become mis-aligned itself.

Luckily I had someone available to help hold that little thing in place at the time, so that I could properly slip the motherboard in and get everything settled.

It was a debacle.

Nope! It will get you in the low to mid 70's under full load, which for intel is acceptable. I would recommend anything noctua makes because it is quality built and will keep you cool @4.5ghz. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to cpu coolers trust me on this one.

OP, have you thought about getting another case? If your current one is giving such a hard time installing the motherboard to the point where you don't ever want to remove the motherboard, then I think it's something worth considering.

You're going to have to remove your mobo sooner or later (willing to bet a couple of times through out the life of your rig), so might as well make it easy for yourself.

Bitfenix and CoolerMaster make good under $100 cases with CPU cooler cut outs, excellent cable management, good cooling and they don't look half bad. Just a thought.

As for your current problem, you're going to have to remove your motherboard to install a new cooler

It sounds like it's more user error than a fault of the case design. I have a whole lot of stuff crammed into my Antec 300 and I can still yank the motherboard out in 5 minutes no problem. Watch some youtube pc building tutorials or something to get an idea of how it's supposed to be done maybe, I dunno. Unless you're trying to stuff an ATX board into an mATX case, there's no reason you should be having that much trouble.
