Can aftermarket CPU Coolers break a motherboard

Hi,
A while back I had a bad experience with a aftermarket CPU cooler which involved it breaking two motherboards and then I had to use the stock cooler up until now. The motherboard is a Gigabyte Z1Z0X Gaming 5 motherboard and I'm purchasing this cooler: https://www.amazon.com/quiet-BK008-PURE-ROCK-Cooler/dp/B01KVNCEIG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1491273887&sr=8-1&keywords=Be+quiet+pure+rock+slim
I was wondering if there is any way this cooler in particular with the Push pin mounting mechanism that the stock cooler uses can break my motherboard like the previous one. (The original cooler was a Be quiet Dark Rock 3 btw)
