Thread Starter 
i was wondering whoever has this case with LGA1155 motherboard
or anyone with knowledge of this infomation can help me

my problem is i was thinking about getting a cooler for my CPU
but later on. and i read a review saying that ur supposed to
install the cooler before installing the motherboard? x.o
i dont feel like taking ouut the motherboard just to install the cooler

cooler = hyper 212+

board = asus p67 PRO

and the case obiviously lancool k62

anyone can help for my future build ?

most coolers have to be installed before installing the motherboard in the case because they have a backplate that goes behind it. some cases have openings in the motherboard panel to allow you to not have to remove the board though (the k62 does) so you do not absolutely have to. I find it easier to remove the motherboard anyway though.

There is plenty of room to install the cooler without removing the motherboard.

that cooler can be mounted either way, but i would make it go front to back for that case

oo okay like making the fan face the back of the case
instead of facing downwards towards the GPU?

Hot air rises so that would be a bad idea. You want the fan blowing air through the heatsink and out of the back of the case. Or blowing the air up through the top.

I had that exact setup. Same MB, same cooler and of course the K62. You can install outside the case or while its in the case. Either way is fine. Although I would probably do it outside the case just so I could move around a bit more.
