I doubt it would blow much INTO that opening. If you have a sabertooth stick a slow and low noise fan on it. Only way to be sure, as with this it will blow down and then across the mobo. Now with that being said if you installed the C14 with the fan over the opening...maybe it would be enough, but I still would opt for a secondary fan.

This cooler is good...but not D14 good. That thing is a BEAST. If you got room in your case for the D14 get the D14, C14 wont even be close at high OCs.

This cooler is great for moderate OCs that will keep the system cool as well as the CPU...but the D14 will kick its ass.
Thank you sir!

I'm not there yet, but I was about to buy a Sandy Bridge setup...was considering the D14 and MAYBE a Sabertooth, but I'll wait until Intel sorts their SHYTZ out with P67 before buying...
Now I'll stick with D14 as my first option...I have enough room (CM ATCS 840 here)
