    you will either need to either get low profile ram or get a different case.

    this case right here was designed with that radiator in mind. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119279

    and here is the cooler looking one. lol http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119277

    Ok so I removed the fans and I was going to have them outside of the case but the cooler screw holes don't line up with the holes on the case (only one side does) because the cooler is too small
  3. but it sorks now right?
  4. Do the outside installation and where it doesnt line up use zip ties i used them in some similar problems
  5. I wanted to keep the fan on the inside so I ended up drilling hole in the case and tilting the fan, it works and cpu idles at 30-35C.
