What liquid cooler should I get with my case?

Ive been running a huge air cooler for a long time with an i7@5.2ghz but I found that its blocking a pciex1 slot that I need for a new wireless card. Long story short I'm going to switch to a closed loop cooler and I need to know what is the best cooler I can fit in my case and have it mounted in a way that wont interfere with anything else.

    Heres what the interior setup is like. Top picture show's the clearance issue with the CPU cooler as my new Asus AC68 will not fit where my old card is. I would like the rad to be mounted in the top section but still be able to use my current fans.
  5. You have to use the fans included in the coolers. You can also put them in push/pull configuration.
  6. why cant I just use mine?
  7. If they are normal case fans, they are not optimized for radiators and its 3 pin, not PWM (4 pins). Case fans don't have high static pressure. You need high static pressure fans for radiators so use the included fans.
  8. 140mm bitfenix specter pros are what these things are, also I run all my fans at max as noise doesn't matter to me

    WILL A KRAKEN X60 TOP MOUNTED WITH HSP NOCTUA F14's FIT WITH A 400R AND A MSI Z87 GD65?
