Help! NH-D14 With EATX Asus MVF

Hey all! After My Forums post I've Configured my computer and I'm about to purchase, But Here's my question.

Will the Noctua NH-D14 Fit on my Asus MaximusV Formula? From the way it looks, it seem the Fusion Thermo VRM Cooler will be getting in the way. Will it? Answer Please.

Here's My build: Mah build.

Sorry for the short post, I couldn't find anything on it.

Additional: My RAM will fit perfectly as it's Corsair Vengeance Low Profile.

-Thanks

EDIT: Here's a Newegg Review of the Mobo Asus MaximusV Formula/ThunderFX.

    some comments before answering things

    1: the maximus v is kind of a ripoff. id suggest a z77-v pro motherboard instead
    2:id suggest this build instead
    http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ilde

    -slightly bigger and cheaper psu. still made by seasonic
    -id get the benq over the acer
    -better keyboard but buy it when its on sale at newegg for 59.99 after MIR
    -i personally dont like mouse buttons but that is your choice
  2. Thanks!, I Value your Opinion But there's a Problem.
    I Grew on mac's and I love Chicklet Style or Slim keyboards, Is there any Slim style Gaming Keyboard Similar to the Lycosa?

    For the Motherboards, Is there really any Noticeable Differences?
    One forum stated that the MVF Will overclock the i7-3770k Extremely Good. Is it really?
    I Don't Want to start an Argument Because I know little.

    Anyways, Thanks for your reply
  3. 1: have you ever tried a mechanical keyboard? the red switches feel like regular membrane keyboards and have a very short distance for actuation.
    2:yes it will but you will need something like custom loops or LN2 to see a major difference. in the end, they use the same software and about the same components so overclocking on air would be about the same
  4. i have yet to see someone go to a mech keyboard and go back to using their standard keyboard
  5. Sadly :( No I have not yet Tried a Mechanical Keyboard
    Since it's Highly Recommended for Gaming I might as well try it.
    As For your mouse, What Do you Recommend/Use?
  6. i use a deathadder black edition (no flashy razer logo and has a slightly better finish than the regular). its more for a palm gripper or a claw gripper.

    I would get a 750W PSU nVidia itself recommend 500W for a single 670. Add 170W for SLI & recommended is 670W.
    http://www.nvidia.in/object/geforce-gtx-670-in.html#pdpContent=2


    For testing conducted for SLI 670, the resulting system consumption for SLI is 433W of which 293W are attributed to the gpu cards.
    http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-670-2-and-3way-sli-review/4



    All points out to 750W being more than enough and 650W being to risky.
  8. As for Keyboards What are the best "Cherry" Switches? Brown, Red, Or blue?
    Will the Corsair K60 Work well?
  9. Thanks bigcyco, Didn't Know As it said 650 was enough on the site.
    And For your Guru3D Site, The link no longer works
  10. red= best gaming switch
    blue=loudest most tactile switch. good for typing but ok for gaming
    brown=a balance between red and blue. tactile yet low actuation force

    the quickfire pro i suggested is a red switch keyboard
  11. Your welcome yeah those DAM psu calculator are the worst it's not your fault.
  12. It Shows that the CM Quick Fire pro is a Brown Cherry MX Switch.
    Anyways I think i will go with the Corsair Vengeance K60.

    Thanks a bunch!

  14. you chose the wrong keyboard. here is the direct link
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823129008&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

    its slightly better than the corsair given it has partial backlighting (only mainly on gaming keys). not to mention they are built by filco. but then again the k60 is cheaper
  15. Thanks Again.
    Also the Wrist pad with the K60 and its a Respectable price.
  16. no problem.
  17. Wait, Wait
    @TheBigTroll
    I've Looked back at my build and it shows that yours is more expensive than mine
    including The MVF and Lycosa.
    Should I keep my build or yours?
  18. with a k60 keyboard
    http://pcpartpicker.com/p/io20

    mine is a bit more given i used a different, more expensive monitor. the benq from what i know is a very popular 120hz 3d display and is rather good so i suggested that instead of the acer, which i know nothing about.
  19. Sorry, I don't feel the need to post another topic again but,
    Is the Dual MSI PE GTX 670's Good or Bad in some way or
    Should I Just get the lightning 680?
  20. the 680 will probably only get you 10fps more. not quite the performance offered by 2 670s. if you want to spend the extra money for a lightning, you are welcome to but its not a very good bang for the buck given the lightning costs 100 dollars more than other 680s
  21. 10FPS More On a Single GPU or in 2way-SLI?
    Anyways I'll stick with the SLI670
    Says here it will still have respectable frames even at a high resolution.
    GTX 670 Benchmark
  22. you get 10fps more on a single GPU. not enough to make a ton of a difference
  23. Alright, Thanks a lot for the Info
    Appreciate it. :)
  24. Hey Sorry for Lots of questions But Can i drop the i7 with an i5-3570k?
    "Since i7 is not utilized for gaming." They say?
    It'd be cheaper and i could get a High-End Powerline somewhere.
    if you know any what would you suggest?
