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.

You have to use the fans included in the coolers. You can also put them in push/pull configuration.

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.
