Very tight fit both height and length not sure it will. The case fits up to a 290mm GPU and the gaming is 277mm, 140mm is pushing it for height which is what the GPU is so plugging in the cables might not be possible even if it fits.

I've got a watercooled MSI gtx 970...



Waterblock and leads skim the window. Not sure on the twin frozr cooler, pretty sure that might hit

Gonna take a look at those, so far i have been looking at these - http://www.cryorig.com/c1.php / http://www.raijintek.com/en/products_detail.php?ProductID=9, both should fit easily, not sure how efficient they are tho smile.gif

I dont think any of those will match the C14S smile.gif

I still think that's a height issue. My CMPS 5 is 5.5 in or 140mm and it won't fit. With a 24mm fan the C14s is 140mm which leaves no room for airflow. Even with a slim fan it will be close. You need a serious low profile air cooler.

It's tough to put a price on keeping your chip as cool as possible, especially when overclocking. $120 doesn't seem too steep a price to pay for ease of fit and very good cooling. Here is the new H100i Extreme v2 for $120. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Corsair-Hydro-Series-H100i-V2-Extreme-Performance-Water-Liquid-CPU-Cooler-24-/381527098213?hash=item58d4c98365

There are cheaper options too, you could go 120mm cooler to save a bit. This is $90

The fan on the C14S can be bottom mounted, not top. So you will be well below 130mm.
But if your concern is the airflow direction, just get the U9S, like i did. With 2 fans, it easy outperforms those slim-fan topblowers.

Nice and clean - good job.
So did you mod the window to fit the Strix in?
Also where did you get the custom cables and were the combs already fitted?

Thank you.
No, did not mod the window, it just leans against the window a bit, not really noticable if you are not looking specifically for it.
The cable extensions came with the combs, I picked the colors, and a guy did it for me, they came out like 15-17 euros...
