I have a Scythe Mugen 2 which is huge and it barely fits and makes it extremely difficult to screw in the motherboard so while large CPU cooler should fit okay I wouldn't necessarily recommend them for this case.
I should've been more specific in my OP, so I apologize about the confusion. The holes on the case itself appear to be too small as I couldn't get the screws that came with the fan to fit. The case didn't come with any case fan screws, though I have contacted NZXT about sending me some, so hopefully I'll hear back with some good news. As far as the cooler, I ended up grabbing a Hyper 212 for 19.99 at my Microcenter, so I plan on just using that until I hear more about the H70 or see something else that intrigues me. Thanks very much to those who replied to my question, I sincerely appreciate it.

Well Corsair H70 comes out August 1st (probably a week before we see in Stores like Fry's & MC.)

ALso; it sounds like you got bad screws. I have a bulk pack of 100 black fan screws and my Beta EVO full decked out with Yate Loon's (from Petra's) and they all fit just fine.

Slide the fact that I needed to thread the screw holes of my fans. But many/most fans don't come pre-threaded.

If you have trouble with NZXT you should be able to find the front fan screws elsewhere, I am pretty sure the screws you need are 4mm (M4) x 30mm which are sold from PerformancePCs: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=28297

On a separate note, I think we should consider updating the opening post for this club, especially the pictures...

To all my fellow NZXT M59 Owners!!!

I want to buy a Gigabyte 1GB GTX 460, will it fit in this case?

I also want to set up an amazing air cooling setup since my living environment is quite warm. I don't care for LED's. All I want is something efficient. It can be moderately noisy, as I have some decent speakers and a sub to block most of it out.

I would post pictures of my NZXT M59 to prove I already own it, but alas I'm not overseas. I'll post them when I'm back later in August.

The GTX460 is a really short card at 8.25 inches long. It's even shorter than the width of a standard ATI motherboard and then you also have the room beyond where the motherboard goes. So there should be room and then some.

Thanks for the reply.

Can anyone answer my air cooling setup question?

Or you can go to your local hardware store and get four 1/8" or #6 x 1 1/4" machine screws and nuts.
