Case: Silverstone PS05
Motherboard: Asus Crosshair IV
Cooler: Asetek (H50)

The Issue:
- There's not enough clearance to mount the H50 rad where the rear fan mounts. The H50 rad hits the top fan grill and the screw holes wont line up.
- I've mounted the rad on the top fan grill temporarily, however I had to offset the rad because it was hitting the MOSFET heat sink on the Crosshair motherboard.
- This makes fan placement difficult... If I put fans in the top fan bay, they don't line up with the rad. I've mounted a 120 mm fan on rad itself, on the inside of the case, but it touches the MOSFET heat sink and blocks the top fan bay cover.

Two questions:
1 - Will a single fan push exhaust setup significantly reduce the cooling performance of the H50 below that of an air cooler?
2 - Will there be issues if the plastic of the fan shroud touches the MOSFET heat sink on the motherboard

Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks for your help.

2. Nope, unless its bending or smushing it.

Sorry, I should have clarified. This is a new build and the CPU is a 1055t.
