Actually I bought the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus, which is gigantic, and it makes me worry a bit about its weight when the motherboard will stand vertical. I didn't know it was so big and heavy until I received it. I was told that it's not an issue, but I'm worried that it might eventually crack the motherboard. If I had a case where the motherboard stays horizontal it wouldn't worry me, but even with all the brackets that came with it, it's going to be basically hanging from the motherboard, pulling on the two screws that will stay on top and pushing into the motherboard on the two lower screws. Any opinions on this?

Also, in my case, a Cooler Master Elite 330, the copper parts that protrude from the aluminum heat sink will touch the side cover of the Elite when I put it back in. Should I cut a hole or improvise something to hold these parts? I would get a larger case, but I can't afford to spend any more money right now.
