Heatsink Causing PC Case to Bulge - Problem?
Hey guys, I just set up a new rig in the last few days. It's an i7 920 combined with a MSI X58M. I also bought a Noctua NH-U12P for overclocking purposes. However, I am using a MicroATX case and it is a bit small for the heatsink. The fan is causing the case to bulge a little bit in the middle, and it takes some effort to screw the side panel in.
Will this damage the motherboard eventually? I really don't care about the case.
