Well not sure my raven case says the max cooler height is 163mm and it fits fine in here - I have to have fairly short ram though. One thing though, the white cooler is not actually white its silver. The fans are white but the fins and top are chrome. A lot of the pictures of it are deceiving.

Any specific reason you mount the 14PE vertically? I am considering getting a Define R4 and was considering mounting it horizontally.

Yes:
*Have only 165mm clearance and RAM is 32mm... 140 + 32 = 172mm wink.gif
*Back vent is 120mm compared to cooler being 140mm.

As it is the NB heatsink under bottom fan + 140mm fan clears side vent cover in side cover by 2-3mm. tongue.gif

Alright, for my new build I am using the Samsung lower profile Ram(22mm) in a Define R4 I think I will be fine mounting it either way with its 170 HSF clearance.

With room to spare. The way I like it. thumb.gif

Have you considered the problem the stock feet limiting the intake airflow to bottom fans? If R4 has same feet as R2 they are only 16.5mm tall. A 140mm fan needs at least 40mm clearance. (fan blade area versus circumference X 40mm; 15.4 sq cm fan & 17.8 sq cm air access with 40mm bottom clearance. Images of mine show 50mm clearance. 40mm casters on base. Base is 10mm thick on sides and 20mm front & rear. Sides strips are 10mm thick with piece across back on bottom of them. This allow filter to slide in and out. wink.gif

Hmm, that's a interesting fan mod idea, I might considering going picking up some wood blocks for my R4 to stand on. Did you buy that Wheel kit or yours or did you make it yourself?

Yes, made it myself. Have made several here in UK.

Drop into one of your local bespoke wood shops and ask for 4 blocks. They will probably cut you 4 for free. smile.gif
Know I would. wink.gif

Just in case someone wants a decent cooler that is on sale.
The Noctua NH-D14 is $20 off today only at Newegg for their 24hr sale.

I myself have the Phantek with 3 fans and like it alot.
I think it is better than the Noctua but someone might not have the money to buy one.
Whenever I get around to it, I will take some pics of my rig and post them.

I have round tuits up the gazzo. Will gladly give you 4 or even 5 if you like biggrin.gif

Had NH-U12P before PH-TC14PE. Was a good cooler but of course not being as big not as good as TC14. I've also found TY-140 fans to be quieter and cool better... not just CPU but also my NB chip on X58A-UD3R. Under TC14 stock fans 80c. Removed blue Gigabyte covers from heatsink and dropped to 55-60c @600rpm. Up rpm to 800 and dropped to 52c Changed to TY-140 fans and dropped to 45c @ 700rpm (as slow as ET6 will set TY140) applaud.gif

Why PH-F140TS @ 800rpm NB is 52c and TR TY-140 @ 700rpm it's 45c? kookoo.gif Gremlins?
