Another Noctua NH-C14 question

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Will it fit inside a bitfenix shinobi?

Will it fit inside a fractal arc midi?

I already tried to search the clearance of the cases but I am new to this and would like some confirmation from those who have tried.

Right now I am aiming for the fractal arc midi but I still may go for the shinobi if incase budget gets tight. Now If research is correct, the C14 will fit both cases BUT will it still allow for a side panel fan to be attached in the arc midi? How about for the shinobi?

Thanks for the quick replies, I'd really like to get the shinobi as it has a better price and I like how it looks over the fractal but right now it only has its price as its best competitive point. If only either the XL or the USB3 version is available in my country it would have been my first choice.

If It gets tight on budget I'll still get the shinobi though.

There isn't much choice really for me. Plus there isn't much choice anyway in the average class mid tower.

Pretty much all the choices are listed here.

Its more important to know if the NH-C14 fits on your motherboard. You can mod a case, but its harder to move RAM & MOSFETs.

I know its bad form to resurrect a thread this old, and I apologize, but I came here from the search & thought some info was missing...

As it happens I just got an NH-C14 to fit on a Foxconn 945P7AA-8KS2 with no RAM coolers. The math says I can put that in a BitFenix Merc Alpha, with Spectre Pro in the side, but that's redundant IMHO. Won't know for sure til case arrives next week though...
