From what i have heard, a 1x card will work in any 4x/8x/16x slot, so you're saying you have no other open slots?

my sound card has a cover...but the problem doesn't lie there...its the BACK of the sound card my noctua clips are hitting....and of course the back of the card faces UP when its inside the case...

There is not only one review. There are many,they just not compare them in a sincle test. I wander why..? Take a look at another one at the same site, with the same system but again,not in the same test.

Hoping to get into the Noctua NH-D14 Club.

Just got a mounting kit for a 3rd fan from noctua today... Works nicely!

I haven't been able to do any testing with it yet because of some issues I've been having with my computer. But so far it only seems to be 2 degrees celcius cooler while idling.

I just switched out the 120mm NF-P12 fan for a 120mm NF-S12B FLX fan which has higher airflow.

according to noctua P12 = cooler fan, S12 = case fan..

Noctua, on the other hand, is following a two-fold approach with its S12 and P12 fan series in order to achieve optimal results at various applications: While the NF-S12B was optimized so as to provide a class-leading airflow to noise ratio and therefore makes for an excellent case fan, the NF-P12 was designed to produce high airflow and an outstanding amount of static pressure, which makes it perfect for use on CPU coolers and other high-impedance applications
