Hi All

 

As subject line says, need one for a mobo which unfortunately has a mosfet in the way of where a backplate might be situated.

 

Ordered a Coolermaster Hyper TX3 Evo which was just cancelled due to no stock, so thought I would try here.

 

Last resort will be a Noctua L9a. CPU tdp is above what is rated for this cooler but willing to give it a shot given no other option.

 

Thanks

What would you need the back plate to look like. Some are round circles and some are shaped like an X. Just so the back plate is away from the mosfet.

Good question, here is an image of the rear of the motherboard ASRock FM2A78M-ITX+

 

 

Not sure a star type back plate would still work, one of the more awkward boards I've seen.
