Hey all, new here. I'm on the tail end of buying the components for a new rig, and the last thing to get is the CPU cooler. I've got the ASUS Z87 Deluxe and a 400R.

From what I can find on here, nobody has tried this board with this case, only the Z87's from Gigabyte and MSI, and they seem to just barely allow a radiator with fans up top.

I want to install a radiator for my Z87 Deluxe, but it appears that even doing just a push or a pull inside the case is impossible due to the VRM heatsink in the way. It looks like a push/pull out the back like the H80i could work, but not sure about fit there either. I haven't taken the case out of the box to check since I may just end up returning it if I need a different case. The Z87 Pro and Expert both have these big VRM heatsinks as well.

I've seen the external fan being done but I don't like that setup. However, since I have no plans for more than one 3.5" drive and a SSD, I am wondering how feasible it would be to trash the drive trays and install an H110i or similar with p/p in the front. Even the bottom would be find but not so sure how it would get adequate air.

I understand that the 4770K runs hotter at 4.5 and above so I'm not sure an H80i/H90 with p/p would be enough surface area. I could exchange the case for another model, but I can't imagine there isn't a radiator solution for my mobo.

Simple question here. Which screws do you guys use to secure 120mm fans on the top of the 500R? The generic ones don't work too well.

The ones that came with the case should do it

What is your opinions about 330R? more silent and less dusty than 300R/200R? and about temps? and about dust, what is better 200R or 300R?

I still worrying too much about it, I keep thinking what tower choose, 200R (~58€), 300R (~70€) and now also 330R (~85€) or 350D (~90€).

330r has much better dust filtering than 300r. The front tho is still not very well designed, very restictive in terms of airflow. Its also much quieter as the 300r tends to be noisy.

If you have the money go for 350D or 330r. They are the best of those you listed smile.gif
