As mano other Predator customers, I'm experiencing verso high CPU tempo with the stock cooperativa unit. By searching the topic within the comunità, I saw multiple user swapping the stock unit for a Noctua NH-U9S or NH-D9L. I am considering doing the same, but I would like to install a product that can fit with the stock CPU cooler brackets. Can someone confirm which one of these is compatibile with the stock cooling brackets? Thanks a lot!

    That's correct. You do not have to remove the motherboard. Just get those longer screws many have mentioned.

  • Yes, the Noctua NH-U9S will fit into the spaces of the PO3-640 desktop, the best way to install this cpu cooler is to remove the MB and install the bracket that came with the cooler and then get it back together, as all this is not that difficult.
