Hello i am having trouble finding a case with 190mm cpu clearance. I want to install a noctua nh d 14 with the side exhaust fan installed. The noctua is 160mm tall and a 120mm fan is 25mm thick. Anyone know of a case that can accommodate this set up? thanks for your help

COOLER MASTER HAF 922 well known performance case which meets your criteria.

So with the haf 922 case i could run the side exhaust fan the 200mm one they recommend and have the 160mm high noctua nh d14 without clearance issues?

Yes HAF 922 10" wide D14 6.3" tall side fan 1" thick still plenty of space at least 2".

so the haf 932 will clear a 160mm cooler with the side fan eve though it is thinner than the 922?

Gotta say I'm skeptical about the HAF 932. It is 230mm wide, 230 - 160 = 70 - 25 = 45mm. And it's always possible the fan will stick out further than 160mm. The HAF 922 will certainly have more clearance. TBH I think the HAF 922 is the better choice for almost all reasons, except maybe having one less 3.5 HDD bay.
