We are not your brain and I for one am not going to think for you. If you are too lazy to figure out what will fit I am not dong it for you. mad.gif

You need to look at cooler measurements and compare that to the clearance measurements of your case and motherboard. It's not complicated. You can do it.

Maximum size of cooler is not more than
140mm high
60mm from center of base to left side (toward PCIe socket)
48mm from center of base to front (toward RAM socket)

Macho 90 will fit. Depending on RAM height the fan might have to be mounted on the back . . Or NH-U9S

I apologize, I'm new to the whole itx thing. If this were a standard cooler I wouldn't' have any worries. I'm just worried if I buy the wrong thing I can't exchange it for a different item. (such is the case in my country.) So I'm being very cautious.

Anyway, thanks for the suggestions. I can't seem to find them locally either frown.gif


Edit: I have seem to found the U9B-SE 2. The predecessor to the U9S. Guess this will do. http://www.tipidpc.com/viewitem.php?iid=38015626

I don't have a complete detailed drawing, but here is what I have. Should fit, but might not be able to use front front fan if your RAM is more than about 35mm

So I can't use these if ever?
GSkill RipjawsX 16GB (8GBX2) DDR3 2133

http://www.tipidpc.com/viewitem.php?iid=38229091

Can I position the fans where I can use that ram? or should I take off the ram's heatsink?

NH-U9S SE2 will fit, but I don't know if front fan will work as good as it could.
Ripjaws X are 40mm tall. That is 43mm above surface of motherhood
NH-U9B SE2 is 32mm above CPU. That is 38mm above surface of motherboard.
This means the front fan will need to be mounted 4-5mm higher.

Would it help if I took off the heatsink of the Ripjaws or If I bought a standard stick of ram? I'm not sure if having 2133MHZ ram would help the system at all haha.

I'm assuming you already have the Ripjaws X

Mounting the fan 5mm higher should not be a problem.

NH-U9B will work fine with just one fan in back.
