That's the first (and hopefully last) time I've heard of a CPU cooler frying a motherboard. I have a similar motherboard in my main PC to the one that was fried by the cooler, so there's no way I'd consider buying this (although I guess you could ghetto-mod it with some tape).

that's gotta be one of the heaviest air coolers on the market 1.94Kg that's nearly 2Kg hanging off your motherboard

shorting a mobo shouldn't happen either if manufacturers stay within the guidelines of AMD or Intel for socket clearances that's just poor design or stupidity on Titans behalf I hope your sending them the bill for the new mobo I bloody well would

We would think that the computer industry would have standards, but that’s not the case.
For example, while building this new computer, the opening on the motherboard tray of the case simply doesn’t fit the CPU position on the motherboard. We had to cut the tray; otherwise, we would have had to remove the motherboard from the case every time in order to change the cooler.

Hey, finally a newer test system!

2500k is an excellent choice imo, lots of people have it.

That sucks doesn't anyone who makes cases own a ruler or measuring tape or do they just rely on some geek made cad diagram actually scratch geek made atleast a geek would know where the cpu socket sits on a mobo

Titan informed us that, because of our review, they changed the backplate design in order to avoid motherboarda damage.
