You won't be able to fit a Nh-D15 in that case without removing the side panel. I have one of these and your only "good" option is watercooling, be it a custom loop or a 240/280mm aio, the best air cooler that will fit is maybe the Nh-L12 or something similar.

Best cooling for that case would be Arctic 280mm Liquid Freezer II, water cooler.

For Air best would be Thermalright Silver Arrow ITX-R > Old Scythe Fuma (Rev. B) (SCFM-1100) > be quiet! Dark Rock TF > Noctua NH-C14S.

In this descending order (with the last noctua being equal to be quiet if u add a second fan, but still worse than the Fuma and Silver Arrow).

I know its not technically air, but the H100i is what I got when I switched to this case. Its as easy to install as an air cooler without any of the clearance issues.

How so, If I'm not mistaken we're talking about the 280x, which has 150mm cooler clearance, and all 4 air coolers I mentioned are < 150mm ?

No. @Dogzilla07 just gave you four better options.

My concern would be getting airflow. That case looks seriously choked.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....
