I don't really want to dissasemble my pc to measure, but lets put it this way, with my 212+ thats 120mm, and the NH D14 is 140mm and with the 212+ I have about half an inch of space? I think it could fit..maybe lol


since the NH D14 is 140mm, wouldnt I just add 10mm to each side of the 212+?

There is no reason to take our system apart to measure. Measure the space from your 212+ to audio card, add that to half the width of your 212+ and you have the distance from middle of cpu to audio card.

212+ is 120mm wide.
D14 is 140mm wide

So yes, if you have 10+mm space it should fit. Keep in mind the fan clips might increase the the room needed a few more millimeters.

NH-D14 fitting means Dark Rock Pro 2, PH-TC14PE, Megahalems and HE01 should fit too. All are 140mm wide or less.
