The case has limited height for a CPU cooler so his choices are quite limited.

Prolimatech have the samuel 17, scythe have plenty, thermalright have some to. There is manylow profile or small cooler that are good on the market. And since the H50 need some mod I would stringly suggest to look for a solution that fits in before thinking of drilling the case.

@kruzn4evr
Thanks for the heads up!

@lowfat

I was scouring the bowls of the internet awhile ago and found out that theres some case modding required. Thanks for the reply though.

@martin_metal_88

The asus maximus gene is 220ish but I found site selling it for 170ish. I'm going to price match(hopefully it gets accepted). Also, If I really can't think of any way to put the H50 in the case, I might just aswell go with air cooling using Noctua NH-CP12.

On a side note... I was thinking of mounting the H50 on the Corsair 650W since the fan of the PSU is directly below the CPU. I was thinking of removing the screws for the fan of corsair and mounting the H50 in a push/pull config. However, I don't know if it is a good idea to do so.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Not sure about pushing Hot air from CPU into PSU. That's just my opinion but for me the PSU is THE part I don't want to break. Remember thatwhen a PSU die it can go with the restof the PC. Just a tought.

Nope. Not a good idea.
