    those reference mb from nvidia have 2 small caps on the back side of them.. they are located right under the cpu ....if the after market cooler has a back plate it has to be modded for those caps to get the proper fit ...if that's helps .F

    Are your problems due to the motherboard or the case that you are using?

    Actually water cooling is a great idea if you're having problems mounting a larger air cooler. You'll need a big case though unless your going for an external based unit.
