Will a H90 fit on my Motherboard??? :>

So i'm looking to get a Corsair H90 for this motherboard but will it work? - http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/motherboards/amdam3plus760gchipset/90-mibhh0-g0eay0gz.html

The main reason i'm asking is that i'm unsure how the backplate works and whether my motherboard can even have the backplate? It doesn't look like there are any holes on the back.....

Thanks for any help guys

If the cooler is compatible with AM3+, the it's compatible with this mobo. Simple as that.

Yes it will. the holes are covered by amd stock cooler mounting on the photos.

make sure your case will fit the 14cm rad

Yeah thanks for clearing that up for me =D Yes i have a fractal design define mini and it has a 140mm slot on the top which is what i will be using for this =D Also with the H90 does the fan go in between the rad and case or does it go in front of the rad?

If you want it to push air through the rad, have it in front; if you want to pull air out though the rad, have it between the case and the rad. If you're only running 1 fan, i would have it in front of the rad. :)

So you know Push or Pull either way no no practicle difference in performance. and if you use pull your rad will be easier to clean. Thats what linus recomends.

It will fit on the motherboard, but make sure it fits in your case!
