Hey, well recently i have decided to get a new heat sink, i found some I liked but the thing is i'm worried my motherboard might flex due to the heat sink weighing 711g~871g Im not a professional on how a motherboard flexes but, how does it flex? also will the weight of the heat sinks make it flex? Here are the heat sinks i have chosen and my motherboard I have. (motherboard) click here sinks) click here click here

your motherboard is mounted on "standoffs" from the case, provided ey are all fitted there should be very little flexibility on the board between the standoffs.

the main thing is heatsink and fan compatible with your cpu and does it fit within the confines of your case (can be very tight in micro or midi cases)?
