Hi Guys,

First, let me thank for taking the time to read, and possibly answer.
Second, my space bar is broken, so there may be times where there should be a space but isn't, but I'll try to minimize them.

Third, my question...

I have an ASRock 870 Extreme3, AMD 955BE with stock cooler(very loud), and my case is a CM 690 II Advanced. I am looking to replace the stock cooler as I am getting fed up with the annoying noise.

Also, I'm not looking to take everything apart to attach it, I would rather just install it with the MB still in the case.

Any suggestions?

Note: I did try the Hyper 212+, but my friend who put the computer together told me it was shorting out the MB. I didn't attempt to put it in myself as during the winter I generate A LOT of static electricity and don't want to damage the CPU.

If I am missing any or you need more information, please ask.

I do not plan on overclocking or Crossfire.

I have that case and a 212+ installed no problem.
As i'm sure countless people do.
Didn't have to remove mobo.
Works great.

And it's a lot quieter than the stock fan?
