Do I need to remove my motherboard if I want to install M9i? I can see that my casing has a hole for my motherboard back panel. Can I just install M9i on my motherboard back panel through the hole of my casing? Here's the picture:

Nope, that is why the mobo manufacturers put the cut out in the tray, it just save time and patients

You can install cooler with motherboard in case. You might want someone to help you by holding the backplate with studs in place on the back while you install the mounting bars on the front. Here is Cryorig installation video.

I think the most important part in choosing a cooler is the case fans. As long as the input fans are pushing more air than the CPU cooler is moving and more than the exhaust fans are pulling. Positive pressure in the case cuts down on dust accumulation. Exhaust placement should be close enough to be moving most of the heat from the source. AIOs are dual purpose for this. Also the input fans should be moving more than out put fans. That will cause heat to be moved out in places you did not think of. Make shure you add the the CFM of the AIO to the exhaust fan so you don't have negative pressure inside the case. I have 110 cfm blowing in and 90 cfm blowing out. the top mounted pwr supply helps moving the cpu heat out. I removed the the 80mm fans because all they did was make noise. I am still using a 9 year old case (Raidmax Smilodon) with a 8350 running at 4.7Ghz. I also have a GTX 690 in the case too. Been good enough for 5 years
