i have a raidmax aeolus and a 2600k cpu,i just found this from another tomsharder user using the same case
So an update: The Noctua NH-D14 will indeed fit in this case! There is a slight issue though, and that is pne of the side window's mounting hardware is too long. Thus, I had to replace the push tab with a standard fan screw.
edit: clarified that only one of the push tabs is too long
can you clarify what he actually means?:D
(also i have found this : http://www.thinkcomputers.org/raidmax-aeolus-case-review/4/
where an 163 mm cooler doesn't fit
Thank you for your help, this was such a puzzle to me that i gave up in buying an aftermarket cooler,but after seeing 40 degrees idle and to paraphrase Eddard Stark :Summer is coming,i fear that it will greatly reduce the lifespan of my cpu thus making impossible to sell when i upgrade my rig.
