I have a mini-itx mobo, which I had no problems with until I tried to install my graphics card. My cpu cooler hangs over the PCIe slot. Can anyone suggest a cpu cooler that is small enough to not take up the slot, but still have enough cooling power to run a few mildly cpu intensive tasks.

Get CM Evo 212, good CPU cooler. I overclocked my i5 from 3.3 to 4.5 increasing voltage and runs below 70 celsius while gaming.
