Hi there guys!

Just wondering if I can fit a Noctua NH-U14S into my Fractal Design Define R3 without major problems?
The cooler is supposed to be 165mm high and the chassi is specified to support coolers up to 165mm.

I'm also wondering whether or not the cooler will block my first expansion slot on my motherboard, my motherboard is the Asus Sabertooth Z77, rest of the specs is found in my signature.

PS: any overclocks or plans to overclock ?

Thanks biggrin.gif

if I'm honest at the moment I've no need to overclock the puter is more then capable of running everything I need it to in ultra quality tongue.gif however I may have a play with it later to see what I can achieve.

It's painted, and so are the NF-F12 PWM fans on the top rad and the NF-A14 PWM fans on the Monsta. I had a crappy airbrush which I used with a tiny compressor. The Noctuas can't be disassembled so they are a bit of a pain to paint.

As you may see I am putting honeycomb/round mesh in there as well, not sure which as I have not decided what to put on the front.

If you can:
Help me check the measurements

I still think the round fan cutouts are better even with honeycomb mesh. I also checked your measurements and they are correct so you are good to go.thumb.gif

Do you think covering the full length or width is something I should do? I kind off want to fulfill the length because it seems like it would look awesome, BUT Im not sure... :\
