Default Noctua NH-14 fit in Bitfenix Outlaw?

Any problems putting a Noctua NH-D14 into a Bitfenix Outlaw? As I understand it, the fans don't exactly line up with the rear fan holes. However, my concern was whether there is enough clearance for the NH-D14.

Hi Griezz,

Maximum height of CPU coolers is 156mm, give or take depending on the motherboard and the stand offs used.
However, here are a few reviews to look at:

BitFenix Outlaw PC Case

This is the Prolimatech Lynx. 159.5mm.

FutureLooks actually puts in a D14 into the Outlaw, but with the removal of the 140mm fan in the center. You'd have to use 120.

Looking forward to photos!

Yo can position the 140mm fan much lower on the fins than it comes as. I think you can get it nearly level with the top of the fins so that shouldn't be an issue as long as the heatsink fits.

They are bloody enormous though..
