Yes, it will fit but there are a couple of things to be aware of...click on the link for the NH-C14's mobo compatibility list... http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=compatibility_gen&products_id=37&lng=en#LGA1155

Tried that wouldn't even boot...

Does a large cpu cooler (such as Silver Arrow / NH-D14) fit on the G1. Sniper 3 without issue?

By without issue, I mean clears the heatsinks, allows first pci-e x16 slot to be used? It looks like a large cpu cooler would block the first pci-e x16 slot? I don't have any experience with large aftermarket coolers.

This is a different board, but it shows how large the cpu cooler is, and looks to be blocking the first expansion slot area.

Or, if it does block the first pci-e x16 slot, can you use the other x16 slot, even though it's recommended to use the first one if only a single video card? Or I mean I know you CAN, but would it make a big performance difference? I am not sure on the specifics as to what is different between these two slots. I assume it's because of the PLX chip giving the extra lanes to the 2nd x16 slot?

Thanks.

I think you should try a diffrent cooler. Top 10 coolers by temp. http://www.frostytech.com/top5heatsinks.cfm

I think you should go for Corsair Hydro H80, but if you have the room and a little more extra cash Corsair Hydro H100

I am having an issue with my new computer using this motherboard.
I installed Windows 7 from uefi boot (gpt disk), and installed drivers and everything.
I have a Gigabyte GTX 670 (the factory overclocked one).
I have the newest 301.42 WHQL driver installed.

My problem is, when I try and do anything video card related that is slightly intensive the driver crashes. When I run the Windows Experience Index test the driver crashes, and says it was able to recover. Same thing happened at Diablo III main menu when logging in. The system will start to become unresponsive (can't move mouse) and then screen goes black and (usually) "recovers".

I also tried Furmark, and within 3-5 seconds it does a similar crash, but with a different message (something about problem with OpenGL driver and error 3).

As far as I know the card is working fine. I was using it on my old motherboard (HP Narra2), and could play Diablo and run Furmark with no issue (except I was cpu limited by an old dual core AMD).

I've tried changing "Power Management Mode" in Nvidia Settings from "Adaptive" to "Prefer maximum performance", as well as changing Windows 7 power options to High Performance.
The card has a 6-pin and 8-pin power ports, and they seem to be installed correctly and everything. I have the card in the first pcie x16 slot. The fans are working, it does not seem to be overheating in any way.

It just seems like a driver problem. I have cleaning out the driver and reinstalling, as well as trying the slightly older GeForce R300 Driver, which does the same thing.
Note that both of these drivers worked on my old motherboard, and therefore different Windows 7 install.

I can use my 3770k Intel HD graphics fine it seems, or at least the WEI test ran and gave 6.6 for graphics.

Anyone have any ideas what might be going on?

More notes:
-I have a 1000W Seasonic platinum power supply, which seems to be working fine (I used it without problem on the HP motherboard).
-Installation is on a OCZ Vertex 4 256GB.

Also wanted to note an additional unrelated problem. I cannot seem to install the Atheros WiFi driver for the included bluetooth/wireless card. It says when trying to install "The installer cannot run on this platform. Please select package for your operating system".
