MSI B75IA-E33 CPU cooler
« on: 26-March-13, 14:23:31 »

Hello :)

I'm looking for an aftermarket CPU cooler for my MSI B75IA - E33.

However, I'm not sure what coolers will be (comfortably) clear of the PCI-E port - so I was hoping you might be able to help me out? When  I say comfortably I mean that I don't want to risk short-circuiting my system because the heatsink accidentally touches the backside of my GPU. I was looking into getting a coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO, simply because it's quiet, but would the heatsink fit? Any suggestions are very much welcomed!

 Comparing pictures of that MB and mine and looking at the 212 cooler I have it looks like it would in fact hit the graphics card. What CPU are using? Do you have a high temperature problem with the CPU now or do you simply want one with a quieter fan?

 What case do you have the MB in?

Not sure how your using your board? But I have mine in a HTPC set up. I use this one "COOLER MASTER GeminII M4 RR-GMM4-16PK-R2 120mm Slim Fan". It is keeping my I3 2120 around low 30c on idle and around 50 on 100% load. I was really impressed with its performance. I thought for sure it would not keep the I3 cool. Great Cooler. The only issue with the cooler. It has metal clips for the fan.

It barley clear the ram..Sits right on the very top of the g.skill Ripjaws"teeth". So I guess if you have ram that is taller you might have an issue.I also use Ceramique 2 for the thermal paste.

My Board is a MSI B75MA-E33

Corsair Low Profile RAM is excellent! They work well on MSI mainboards.
