    If you think you can get either on without pulling the motherboard, get the Noctua.

    You may be able to swap the stock mounting with the Noctua mounting but it must be done in a specific order and with extreme care or the backplate will fall through the board and the board will need to be removed. If you don't trust yourself to swap the mounting it's best to pull the board anyway.... If you commit to pull the board then just about any well reviewed cooler can be installed easily.

    ya know what i have an idea, just pull the board so you have the easiest access to mounting the cooler and be able to see what your doing, otherwise if your scared of doing it yourself have a computer shop do it for you. or someone that knows what they are doing
