My System Specs

Default Rosewill Challenger Quick Question?

Case:
Newegg.com - Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, comes with Three Fans-1x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1x Top 140mm Fan, 1x Rear 120mm Fan, option Fans-2x Side 120mm Fan

Does anybody know if a Corsair h50 heatsink will fit in this case? My friend is thinking about getting it and was planning on putting it on back fan, wasn't sure if it would fit.

that's what i told my friend, he never listens to me though, I'm gonna try and convince him, 912 has better wire management also. and I know that fits everything.

It looks like it will, however I can see you losing use of the top 140mm position when installing the H50.
The same thing happened for me on my NZXT Lexa S, once I installed the H50 there was no room to mount that top 140.

As for the case, well in all honesty it comes down to what the person who owns it has to look at.
Sure it might not be perfect in 'our' eyes, but we aren't the ones having to look at it each day correct?
People think I'm crazy for my use of NZXT and TT case when they would opt for other things. End of the day, it is what we have to look at.

My thoughts,
ST
