Hi, after looking at different computer parts I have my heart set out on the ROG maximus V formula I was wondering if the NZXT Phantom 410 will have sufficient space for this motherboard. Compared to the standard 9.6 inch ATX board this one is 10.1 and I was wondering if it would fit I am also planning on putting an h100 in it. So will the phantom 410 fit all of the components I listed thanks also if it doesn't some case recommendations will be appreciated thanks.

1: if you are not spending 2000+ dollars on a "ultimate gaming rig", the maximus v is not useful
2:it should no problem although i generally prefer the arc midi from fractal thats going for 70 bucks at newegg
3: dont bother with liquid cooling unless you go custom. not worth the money. get a noctua nh-d14 heatsink instead
4: if you are being extremely stubborn on the changing the CPU cooler, get the upcoming h100i. new fans from what i know. much better fans
