haf xb case fan + cpu cooler compatability

based on what i have been reading today i will be purchasing the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119265
and i would like to install a 200mm fan on the top slot, however i dont think the cpu cooler that i have been looking for will fit under the 200mm fan i wanted to get http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=productview&products_id=34&lng=en&set=1
does anyone have any experience with the case?

    I don't think it would work with the 200m fan.
  3. what about using http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=productview&products_id=32&lng=en&set=1 instead of the nh-d14, its a lot smaller so it should fit under the 200mm fan with some clearance, the nh-u9b is 125mm tall where as the nh-d14 is 160mm tall, plus most of the fans i have seen are 30mm thick but i have seen 20mm thick ones. btw my processor is an amd-8350 and i have no desire to overclock, im just looking to keep the processor cool under load

    That one should work fine.
  5. thank you for your assistance
  6. i really want this case because i have the noctua d14. the weight makes me worry. is it worth it? i really like the horizontal board thingy.

    Well its actually a pretty nice high airflow case now that I have used it. The only downside to me is because its so open its not very quiet case unless you get good quality fans.
