Does the V8 GTS fits my motherboard?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, i've been looking forward to get an aftermarket cooler for my CPU and i'm excluding water coolers since i know people who got their systems fried due to leaks. That being said, i'm sticking with air coolers, and the V8 GTS called my attention at the very first sight, for lots of reasons. The thing is, i've seen a lot of reports saying it blocks most motherboards first PCIe slot. My motherboard is an ASUS Z97M-Plus, Micro ATX form factor, and the first slot is the only one i have to fit my EVGA GTX 980Ti ACX 2.0 with backplate. I've looked through the internet for this situation but haven't found anything, so i decided to come to cooler master itself for help. Thanks in advance!

Hi Vinicius,


I think it will block the first PCIe slot. 


Compare it with the dimensions of this Mini-ITX board.
