based on what i have been reading today i will be purchasing the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
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...
does anyone have any experience with the case?

I don't think it would work with the 200m fan.

what about using http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=productview&products... 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.
