Asus Z97 Sabertooth mark 1 with Noctua Nh-D15 - will it obstruct my pcie slots?
New to Tomshardware, not sure if this should go in the cooler or motherboards section.
I'm building a computer and I haven't gotten my cooler yet. Just out of curiosity, before I buy the cooler I would like to make sure it's not going to obstruct my PCIe slots. I was planning on plugging in my video card into the pcie x16 slot on it and I'd like for those not to be obstructed because I should only have two of them.
Has anyone had experience with this? If not I'm going to take some measurements and take a look at the noctua specs, but just curious because on their site it said the Z97 sabertooth mark 1 and Noctua nh-d15 were compatible with no additional notes.
Just for reference, my build I'm setting up Intel i5-4670k Asus z97 sabertooth mark 1 Nvidia geforce gtx 770 Noctua Nh-D15 cooler Crucial 4x2 gb ram Samsung 840 evo 250 gb ssd
Please let me know if you have had any experience with this particular motherboard/cooler combination! If you see any issues with this build or anything let me know also!
