Hyper 212X orientation

Recommended Posts

Another question: It appears that the 4 holes for the 1151 motherboard form a square, not a rectangle, and the holes in the mounting plate, in the middle positions, are 7.5cm apart in each direction. Given that, can I mount my Hype 212X in either direction, either with the fans pointed North-South (where North is the top of the case) or East-West (where West is the rear of the case)?

 

On my MB, the memory is directly North of the CPU, but there is plenty of clearance for it. My case is a CM HAF 932, so there are fans pulling air out of the top of the case and the rear. If I orient it East West (with the airflow blowing toward the rear, the air exiting the cooler fans would blow across the voltage regulator heatsinks, which might be an added bonus.
