Can I install a CPU fan backplate even though there is no cutout on my case?

  1. Hey,

    I would like to get the Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO for me. The problem is that I don't have a backplate cutout. Will it still be possible to install?

    Thanks

    Yes. You'll need to remove the motherboard in order to install the hardware on the backside of it. I have an Antec 300 case and when I installed a CM Hyper 212+, I removed the the board from the case.

    More work, but doable.
