I was thinking about building an i5 system in the same case that you have, and was looking at that exact cooler, since apparently large 120mm towers would be way too big for the case.
1. Does the C14 block the first pcie slot? I noticed you had your video card moved down a bit, but it's hard to tell if it's actually blocking it from pics.
2. You have a nice overclock! That seems to be a nice cooler as far as performance. Do you know anything about the NH-U9B though, and if it would be sufficient to cool a 2500k @~4.0-4.4ghz?
Yep it fits just fine, it (c14) doesn't block any slots. I just moved down my gpu so there would be more airflow between the CPU and CPU. Gpu temps stayed the same but my CPU dropped a little when gaming since its not pulling the heat from the card.
The U9B is plenty to cool the 2500k, I actually had one before I got my C14. I had it at 4.7ghz for some time but dropped it to 4.5 cause I wanted the fans quieter.
Either way they are both good coolers and will handle a 2500K just fine.

Thanks, I finally figured out how to take some good pics thanks to the thread in the case section. I might take some more tomorrow.Edited by nagle3092 - 6/10/11 at 11:21pm
