You might have to do this but it looks like it will work. Best bet is to email them.

This is for the U12S, for your board it says that in vertical orientation it blocks the pcie slot.

yeah that's the 120mm version. So the 92mm must be fine. Now I just wanna double check that it works in my cubitek.

According to Cubiteks own Spec sheet page for the Mini Cube - this case supports a max height of 150mm for CPU cooler, you should be good to go.

Yeah I read that, just looking at it though makes me think twice... Maybe I'm just being paranoid.

Well if its any comfort I've known most case manufactures to be conservative with their limitations for vid cards and HSF height as they take many other things into consideration for the average customer - not a OCN enthusiast thumb.gif

Considering that the Noctua is about 25mm under the max height for this case and I were you with that awesome case - I would buy that cooler no problem, or the loki. But the Noctua, arguably, will be much more quiet than anything else you can fit in there.
