The Noctua NH-d14 will physically fit, but you are limited by board type and manufacturer. It will fit with the "drive caddies", but if you want a GPU, it will severely limit your selection.

I was thinking something along these lines in no drive caddies in the system.

I was planning to mount the drives in the front bezel as there looks to be a large enough gap to place them next to each other. I would need some better measurements to be sure of the gap, distance to the fans and length of the front panel connectors as they would have to route around the drives. But for sure I should be able to get 2 of them in there with flush mount screws to the interior front of the bezel.

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($189.99 @ Microcenter)
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 65.0 CFM CPU Cooler ($80.76 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe Mini ITX LGA1155 Motherboard ($179.98 @ SuperBiiz)
Memory: Samsung 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($44.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Western Digital Scorpio Black 750GB 2.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($76.68 @ SuperBiiz)
Storage: Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($219.99 @ Adorama)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 680 2GB Video Card ($469.99 @ Newegg)
Case: Fractal Design Node 304 Mini ITX Tower Case ($89.90 @ Amazon)
Power Supply: Silverstone 550W 80 PLUS Gold Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($106.98 @ NCIX US)
Total: $1459.26

other option for a decent tower cooler I think would be the XIGMATEK Dark Knight II or Phanteks PH-TC12DX would work as well (I know the 140mm PE version is to tall for the case)

EDIT: Just realized as well that a couple of those vendor's I haven't heard of enough to trust but the cost I figure sticking with Newegg, Amazon and NCIX-us shouldn't add to much more to it....

thanks for the pic. judging by dimensions online it seems there would have to be at least 15mm space in between a 140mm fan and the pci express graphics card for an h90 to work. looks like it would be an extremely close fit. As it is I would be cutting portions of my memory sinks off to fit it because im looking at the asrock that has support for 2600 ddr3. Im looking to build a dual graphics 5800k system (overclocked to match a 6670, roughly 1013mhz graphics clock and as high as i can get with cpu with graphics at that speed). I am also doing this because I want the node to be my htpc/steam box/data storage all in one (6 x 2tb 7200 rpm drives). plus fm2 is sticking around for a long time. biggrin.gif

my i7 laptop just took a dump, which i was using for my htpc machine. so i was looking to replace it with this and possibly a tablet for on the go type stuff.

if worse comes to worse i would get the h80, but if i can fit an h90 push/pull why the f not, right?

also as an added note I currently own an h80 in one of my machines (its an 1100t that doesn't even break a sweat at 4.2) biggrin.gif

Edit: On second thought id probably just bend the ram fins 90 degrees.

(I know i PM'd you but i figured I would ask it on this thread ... why not biggrin.gif )


How do you (with out it looking or feeling like, a peace of junk ... ) fit a 120mm fan on a 140mm fan Slot?

I know it won't go on the ASRock Z77e-ITX but it should fit on the ASUS board without issue and without blocking the PCI-e slot. If you look at the thread for coolers for the ASUS P8Z77-I it shows one mounted in a prodigy with a GeForce 670 as well still in there as well... - found it -

I highly doubt a 140mm Rad will fit there. The Rad will overhang too much and interfere with one of the sides.
