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.
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.
EDIT: 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.
