CM V8 GTS compatible motherboard?

Recommended Posts

Recently purchased the CM V8 GTS CPU Cooler (looks amazing) for my Gigabyte GA-X99 Gaming G1 WIFI mobo.........it blocks the first PCI slot (very sad...heart broken infact).  Whats a high end black or black/red mobo that is compatible with this cooler?  Any and all advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

Have you looked into any motherboards from MSI?

 

I think due to the large design of the V8 GTS, the first PCI slot might be blocked on a lot of motherboards :(

Hi Joshua,

 

If you plan to use the V8 GTS on X99 chipset boards it is very likely the first PCI-E slot will also be blocked out due to the similar designs. I recommend trying the MSI or ASUS X99 boards, the X99 Deluxe from what I believe has slightly more clearance from the CPU to the first PCI-E slot than other X99 boards.

 

Anyways please do check it out on their website and maybe contact their support to make sure.

 

Cheers! :)
