I am getting a Gigabyte GA-H77N-Wifi for Node 304 server build. The mobo has the CPU socket at the bottom right near the PCIe and memory slots. This location also make it very close to the Node 304's HDD racks. I think a 92mm HSF will fit within these constraints and would face front-to-back to utilize the case's airflow. However, has anyone actually done so? Or can someone help me find a picture of a tower HSF in the Node 304 and all the HDD racks installed? I know a 120mm HSF can fit but you lose a HDD rack.

Here's the specifications for Socket 1155: http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/design-guides/3rd-gen-core-lga1155-socket-guide.pdf
On page 104, figure B-1... it has the socket area design guidelines. It says the max width of the "Keep Out Zone" is 95mm.

I was looking at the Silverstone AR02. Any other suggestions?
