Does the NH-D15 Block 1st PCIE on MSI A88XM Gaming Mobo?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys wondering if the NH-D15 Block 1st PCIE on MSI A88XM Gaming Mobo? Their site said is compatible and no notes about blocking that first PCIE slot. Normally they tell you if it blocks it or not but it doesn't seem like it does.

Not sure if it will block the slot on that particular board or not, but if their site says it is compatible then it should be. If you havent bought the cpu cooler yet and are still worried, why not buy the D15s? It is the same cooler, but tower is adjusted so that it will not block the PCIe slots.

I see, I purchase that cooler already good thing is from amazon so I can return it and get the correct cooler at the worse case. biggrin.gif Worse case I can grab Corsair theh100i/ h115i if all the coolers will be blocking that slot or better yet the Dark Pro 3 by be quiet I know it doesn't block the 1st PCIE slot but it will be a little bit less performance.

I'd give it a try first before you send it back, but if not the D15s should work fine. It will be a lot better and a lot quieter than the H100

D15 will be close. Center CPU to near side of 1st x16 PCIe socket is75mm, and D15 is also 75mm plus fan clips. GPU has to fit with nothing sticking of the back of it that are within 2-3mm of top of PCIe socket.
