I was wondering if anyone has installed a Coolermaster 212+ CPU cooler on a Asus Crossfire V mobo w/8150 processor. I just got the mobo and it looks as if there's a back-plate on the board already. And a plastic component around the CPU that appears like you can just undp the screws and place the X piece onto what's there already. I'm a first time builder and unsure, and I hate to handle the board too much trying to figure it out...Any thoughts greatly appreciated.
Yes it should be fine and the cooler won't be hitting that 'compnent around the CPU'. These are the heatsink for the CPU VRMs.
