The problem is, when you plug in that four-pronged power cable, you have to do it thru the rear fan vent. The fan guard on my case was a part of the case so I ended up cutting it out. The only way the hs fits is with the curves in the pipes towards the front of the case otherwise, they hit the capacitors.
