Thanks!

No, it will not clear the d14.The d14 will fit right up to the side panel.

Really? I really want to fit this cooler in with a fan:

700

Also my fan is 120mm x 120mm x 25mm.

Could this fit?

Thanks!

The define and arc mini can only support heatsinks up to 165mm. The d14 is 160mm. It won't fit if you put a side fan on there. I've seen people fit it in the case without a side fan. but what heatsink did you post up up there ^^?

I posted the Prolimateh Genesis.

So maybe I need to water cool?

If you want the side fan then you can either go with a lower profile heatsink or watercool. Check out the Corsair H-series kit. If you use the push/pull configuration and mount either the h70/80 to the back you still wont be able to use the side fan because it will be in the way. I use a h70 with just push configuration and i still have to trim off a piece of my side fan to clear the h70. Also used the 120mm fan. Here is a pic:

I say get a H80/H100. and add a side fan, if you must. I personally dont really see a huge need for a side fan, unless your temps are waaay off the charts.

Cos right now with my Midi, I am cutting away the side fan slots and add a window. Really, if you are running a single GPU set-up in a Fractal case, your cards will not overheat at all or run into any temps issue due to lack of airflow even without the side fan.

Well, if you plan to go with SLI, then you will have an issue, but I personally am not looking to go SLI due to the driver issues, and even if I do it will be after I put in my watercooling loop.

Fractal Midi + Case Window mod + Lutroo's extensions + Rasa RX 240 = Epic win.

I have decided to get the Corsair H80.

Could I fit this cooler on the case with the possibility of putting a fan at the top or will there be not enough room?

This cooler looks thick and looks like it might not leave room for a 140mm fan at the top of the case.

Please help me here!

It will fit at the top if you put the radiator towards the back of the case. If you put it on top then no it wont fit the 140mm fan.

Here is how mine is setup:

Thanks for that, but the problem is I am getting the Define and that only has one option for a top fan and only fits 120mm fans.

Your setup looks very nice though, + rep.

From the looks of it you won't be able to put the fan on top using the h80 because it will stick out too far also. Same reason why i didn't put my top fan closer to the back. Hope it helps and good luck!
