I wanted to get a new water cooler because i have a weird version of the hyper 212 cpu cooler and it literally bends my motherboard. The cooler leans down. I wanted to get a watercooler to solve this problem but i dont know if i should.
If not what cpu cooler should i get that is light weight and highly effective.

Amd phenom II x4 955 3.7ghz 40 idle and 55c Load
Sapphire hd 5850
4gb ddr3 1600
asus m4a79xtd evo
bfg 550w psu
250gb hdd
coolermaster haf 932( it would be nice to know if anyone else with this case is having this problem because i dont know if it is bending my mobo or the mobo tray)

hmm...That's odd. I have the same case but a Gigabyte MA790FXT-UD5P. I also had the TRUE a while back but I never any problems with motherboards bending. Are you sure everything is mounted properly? I switched to water cooling for a X3 720 @ 3.7GHz.

Do you have a backplate with the cooler?

Backplate is installed correctly, screws are in tight i just dont know, My cooler does weigh like 4 lb.
