post #1991 of 7172
Hey guys, just bought this awesome case but I am bit concerned of what CPU cooler should I buy.
I have 3 variants:

1) thermalright macho hr-02. Not sure it will fit
2) scythe mugen 3 rev.B
3) scythe ninja 3 rev.B

These are the only coolers that i have in my local PC store.

Other components in the PC are going to be 2500k, maximus IV gene-z, gtx570 dc ii and 8 gigs of normal RAM with no heatsinks on it.

Please help me decide. Tnx in advance.

Ps: oh yeah, congrats for 200 pages on this thread. :3

Honestly air flow isnt as good as a full atx case, but thats to be expected since they have more fans and more area for air to disapate. For the size of this case you wont find anything better. I hacve an asus gtx570 dc ii and my temps did go up 4c in this case vs. my rosewill blackhawk. That said my gaming temp overclocked with the max voltage (1125mv @900mhz) is still only 64c in ambient temps in the mid to high 70F's. its a solid case, if your looking for this size its got tons of room.

I've seen the HR-02 in this thread. Trying to find it....

EDIT: Here and a couple posts above. Pretty sure that's the Macho in there. biggrin.gif
EDIT 2: Ah, it's not. doh.gif

The HR-02 Macho is going to be a real right fit on an 1155 board but I think the problem is more to do with the fan. At 140mm wide it should squeeze in with a few mm to spare from the GPU but with the 140mm fan and the fan clips it comes to about 152mm wide (I don't think you can orient the fan the other way because it will be too tall and prevent the side panel going on, though I may be wrong here)

I got the Venomous-X with the fan shrouds, it's 127mm wide but with the fan shroud it comes to 145mm and atm the GPU is propped up on angle on top of the cooler - it seems to run ok but I'm a bit unsure about the extra weight onto the cooler and the way the GPU is being forced up so I might look at removing the shroud and trying to mount the fans a different way.

As such I would say the HR-02 would be my choice but I'd probably look to use a good 120mm fan with a cable tie mod to avoid clearance issues.

Hi everyone, I just purchased this case and all the parts and i'm in the process of putting it together. Only problem i'm having is my Noctua NH-D14 is touching the graphics card which is a EVGA 570SC. Dont wanna ditch the Notuca so I was planning on using a Dremel to trim the sides. Would only be trimming a few millimeters so would the cooler be OK still maintaining its performance?

Is the actual cooler touching it or just the fan clips?

I'm sure you will be ok, I imagine your only gonna need 5mm or so off. If you were gonna take say 13mm/ 1/2" I bet performance would still be almost uneffected. I wouldn't want to take that much off though personally.

At first I thought, ok it was hitting the clips but once I removed the fan it was clearly touching the GPU components. At least one good thing worked out which was the Gskill Ripjaws cleared it by a mile. I could fit 4 modules with the cooler.

Yea, i figured around 5mm would be good and wont affect the cooler. Now i'm debating if I should use a dremel or just some wire cutters since the fins are thin.

That's the tough part. Cutters, which I would prefer metal shears (heavy duty cutters at home depot or any hardware store), would probably leave the fins looking mangled at the tips but would easily cut it. Dremel cutting wheel should leave a clean cut but because its so think might not cut properly. Maybe try the dremel first lol

Yea, will try the trusty Dremel first and see how that goes. Dont really like how it flings metal debris all over the place and then have to introduce it back onto the motherboard but now i'll have to bust out my air compressor. Cant wait to go home and try it out, will post pictures.
