Default Non-OPT Mobo and Water Coolers

Hi everybody

How are you all doing? Just signed up today and this is my first post.

Is it possible to install a twin fan water cooler such as the Seidon 240mm or Corsair H100i on a non OPT z87 Mobo?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Short answer: yes.

Long answer: the compatibility issues are more related to the computer case than with the motherboard.

Thank you, Gabriel. You have saved me a couple of dollars as I am able to downgrade to a lower specs board.

Best regards.

Oh. One caveat. Make sure that there is enough clearance around the CPU socket. Some motherboards with tall heatsinks prevent the installation of fancy cooling solutions.

Thanks. Since I am buying the mobo on-line, there's no way to test it so I'm back to the OPT board.
