Cpu heat sink support

I just bought the hyper evo 212 and im worried it may be to heavy for the mother board to support . The case is cut outaround the cpu base so more mounting studs are not a option...is there another way to provide support to this area?

  1. it always looks that way for the first time :D
    Nothing is going to happen to your mobo. Just relax and fix it.
  2. it looks heavy but in all honesty your mobo is stronger than you think.

    Which motherboard are you fitting in on?
  3. Well i guess you guys know your stuff lol i can't believe how sturdy that thing sits on there. I thought for sure it would rip off but with that back plate mounted that it came with it just sits there looking assert me like "psshht, you thought i couldn't handle this?" Lol

    By the way, if you think the cm 212 evo is heavy

    Go look at a Noctua DH-N14 > this is a beast in terms of size.

    Glad you've got your CM 212 EVO fitted alright, if you want to check it's on ok just post pictures of inside the case.
