CPU-cooler fit for Supermicro X9 motherboard
I've got a Supermicro X9SCI-LN4F motherboard. Unfortunately the back plate used for the stock cooler (Supermicro cooler for 1U chassis) is tapered. This means I cannot use a regular socket 1155 CPU cooler. I need one that is compatible with this the BKT-0028L back plate, so I can put this motherboard in a tower case instead.
I figure I'm not the first one experiencing this problem. Any suggestions?
Pull out the dremmel.
Heat it and remove it.
seems to me that there is a risk of damaging the motherboard doing this.
Have you done it yourself?
