    No it will not crack or break your board..it will maybe crack your board if you didn't screw it tight enough and it falls off...

    Also the best air cooler right now imo is the Noctua NH-D14, Plus it comes with 2 high quality fans. But there are some really good ones out there. If your worried about cracking your board you might wanna look at getting the pre-filled watercooling system. Like the Corsair h70 or the Antec H20.
