I suppose if I were to need a better cooler I could sell the evo and buy either a smaller air cooler or just get a antec khuler or similar.
well no harm trying to fit the evo since you already have it and dont feel bad about having unused stuff lying around. i have some i7, i5 ivy CPUs and boards lying somewhere around in the house along with a GTX570 and soon to be thrown into the tech junk pile 7870 myst
I havent quite got that much stuff lying around
although it would be nice!
I tend to sell things when they're not being used.
Regarding coolers, ive seen the coolermaster tx3 hyper evo which is supposed to fit fine with this board, can anyone confirm? Its basically a size down from the 212 and has push pins instead of a back plate.
