You should be fine. here is an image to get a reference on size.

It is hard to really tell. Mobo cpu placement is different and cut out placement too from other cases.

If the insides and CPU hole is the same as the Define R4, I found a picture on here of someone showing the back of the motherboard with an aftermarket cooler and their motherboard. Found out their motherboard, pulled up the overhead pics on Newegg to compare it to mine, and found out my CPU placement on the board is just slightly to the right and down (a few millimeters at most) compared to the other guy. And I can say I should be able to fit it without a problem (and be able to take it out as well... hopefully haha).

There's a big difference between an open case and having a fan blow air over the card. If you have a spare fan you can try positioning it at the grphics cards with the case open and see if they overheat. What ram cooling are you using?

Someone stated I am using a incompatible block, so it's not making good contact. When my full cover block arrives I should be good to go

I just too a piece of acrylic and cut it to size. Wrapped it in CF vinyl and then set it on the PSU. Im gonna get some plastic velcro to hold it on there. that way its easily removable if needed
