Thanks for the feedback! While I am not currently considering liquid cooling, how tight of a fit are we talking about? "It barely fits" or "You will need tools to twist the metal"? Also, would you say the airflow is good, does your system run cool enough? From the pictures I have seen, the front is actually solid and the intake has to get the air from the front-side slits. That looks as if it would affect performance.
I was hoping to get a few more opinions but I guess that is not going to happen
Thank you once again for your post czar357!
