I am working on new build that for the heat sink I have a Cool Master 212EVO. I typically have been using Corsair Hydros. the hydros are low profile as long as you can find a good place to mount the radiator/fan. My question is with the CoolMaster. Are there considerations when mounting in a tower. It just seems to me such a high heat sink coming off perpendicular a vertically mounting just seems like it could be undue stress on the Motherboard. You know gravity and all. Is there nothing to worry about as long as the motherboard is properly secured to the case?

Tall heatsinks are made to stress the board a little but if every standoff/screw is correctly placed on the motherboard you shouldn't have any problems.

That's why they provide a sturdy backplate.
