I have a FX 6300. If I'm installing a Hyper 212 Evo on an M5A97 LE R2.0 (motherboard) in a RoseWill Challenger U3 Case, will I need to take out the MOBO from the case to be able to install the 212 evo?

No.

Amds do not require the backplate like intels do.

The Hyper 212 Evo does require a backplate on the AMD I believe but screwed in different position of the baseplate.

Correct, but with this Case do I need to take out the Motherboard at all during installation or can I take off a side panel and see the back side of the mobo?

My mistake the evo does have the backplate, i had a different cooler install confused with that one.

edited: The challenger does have a open slot in the back for the motherboard, so you should not need to take it out.

So yes, you will need to take it out.


Damn that sucks! Are you sure? I been watching some videos and some people are able to take off the case side panels and they can see the mobo's back and are able to install the back plate.

Edited post, the challenger does have the motherboard cpu cutout on the back.

You won't need to take out the motherboard from the case. The opposite side of the case has the cutout for installing a aftermarket cooler at a later date. so you don't have to take it all apart. It can be a little bit more to fiddle about with but I guess it's easier than taking every single component apart and back again.
