    Yep, rest up. I would avoid putting on social media what your doing rest wise. Not saying they will but my work tried using it against me. Also, today I managed to rip my Ryzen CPU out from its socket while removing the heatsink. Squeaky bum time as I've not had chance to check if it powers...

    ASRock Z390 PHANTOM GAMING-ITX + Noctua NH-L12S?

    Noctua states a nope for it, though I'm unsure if its due to the fan on the bottom or not https://noctua.at/en/mainboard/ASRock_Z390_Phantom_Gaming-ITX_ac
