Would the following fit together?
- Z97 MSI Gaming 7
- Phanteks PH-TC14PE
- NZXT Phantom 630
- Corsair Vengeance

From what I've seen you can move the fan up on the CPU Cooler to clear the RAM if you have problems and also I would be willing to move the side fan of the case to the top to create extra room for my CPU Cooler. Note - I plan to use both fans included!

Corsair Vengeance - http://www.corsair.com/en-gb/vengeance-8gb-quad-channel-ddr3-memory-kit-cmz8gx3m4x1600c9

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I really need a new CPU cooler as currently mine runs very hot! Cheers!

According to NZXT website that cooler is incompatible with the case. You can check compatibility following this link http://www.nzxt.com/product/detail/118-phantom-630.html

What? I've seen a PH-TC14PE in a 630. Yes they are compatible. I love phanteks but I just have to recommend the Cryorig R1 Universal if you want a great high end air cooler. It would match just as well as the PH-TC14PE would and performs slightly better. Also the R1 Universal is guaranteed to have clearance with all 4 DIMM slots full.

Really? On the NZXT website it says they aren't compatible but if you've seen on before, then it must be wrong. Just to note though, what side were the fans on, as I'm looking for one to clear my RAM aswell. Thanks for the reply though, and I'll look into the cooler you suggested!

Yes I've see it on there but the fans were facing vertically instead of side to side. I'll ask my friend for a picture of his. It's a tough install though so be careful. I've never see an R1 in a 630 but it strives to maintain high compatibility with many cases and such. I would choose it over the PH-TC14PE (which the R1 outperforms it anyway and matches just as good if not better with a way easier install)

Yeah don't worry about it I've already pretty much set my mind on a water cooler. H110 or Swiftek H220
