As you know, this motherboard isn't compatible with any of the aftermarket coolers out there because there's a little annoying chip on the back of the socket. So no backplate fits. What if i cut a little square shaped hole on the backplate so that it will fit around the tiny chip?
well, do you know of any good ones? i know that the noctua nh-l9a has 4 screws instead of a backplate.. but it's a low profile cooler, and yeah.. it comes with the limitations every low profile heatsink has.
plus, among the few mini itx fm2 boards out there, the asrock is the only one that allows you to adjust the multiplier, FSB, vcore... i dont know about the gigabyte one, but the socket is too close to the pci e and a big cooler won't fit in if a descrete card is used
my question still remains though.. would it cause any problems if i cut a hole in the backplate?
