    Are you asking about this particular cooleror open to suggestions? Any special oddities, like memory dimm location or height?

    If I go aftermarket, I usually look for Noctua brand.

    mm... probably gonna be a tight fit in a mid-tower, but there shouldn't be anything too funny (Gigabyte Aorus G5). The RAM I have does not have crazy, high cooling fins either.

    edit:

    Oh wait, too tall. Needs to be <150mm tall.

    hm... oof. Bit of a price jump, but I guess that's the form factor tax. ahem
    So I need to install a backplate for this? hm.

    Guess I'll have to take her rear cover off tonight to see where the socket is in relation to her back door.

    edit2:

    Oh. I guess I could roll with this ?

    Stuff it into the roof of the case.

    The manual lists the backplate being compatible with 1155/1156/1366 - that's the same for 1151?

    Newegg has a good filtering system for narrowing down compatible coolers.

    Been using that cooler with 2 fans in my old Fx8350 build for like 7 years.. Now my parents got it
    Fans being Noctua fans, they still sound like it's their first day running​

    Just drill your own holes! Don't mind those components in the way, they're not needed.
