The CPU cooler should fit, but it will be close. The cooler is listed as 158mm high and the case says it supports coolers up to 158mm in height. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thank you, I wouldn't have caught that. How about this case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... It says it has "clearance for top 240mm dual radiator for water cooling solutions". I imagine that will cover the Noctua no problem? Reply to AntaresX m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !

Either case should work fine. Pick the one you like best. Reply to shortstuff_mt m 0 l Ask the community Post an answer Related resources Updated build: Checking for issues before I buy.
