    Supermicro X10 mATX board and Hyper 212 EVO?

    Anyone happen to know if the Supermicro X10 boards in Micro-ATX are compatible with a Hyper 212 EVO cooler? Fit wise. Specifically the X10SRM-TF. I'm aware of the PWM fan issues. I'm just concerned with fit. (I have this cooler already so hopefully it fits) X10SRM-TF | Motherboards |...
