(sorry for my kinda shity english)
So in the moment i'm in the middle of getting the parts for my new build, so far so go, the only part that is missing is a CPU cooler, i read the Noctua NH-D15 is the best you can get with air but its very large. So i hope that sombody of you could help me find out if in combi with that cooler in the vertical position (so the air goes out the back) would block the first PCIE 1X Slot.
If not, if i use one of the lower PCIE 1X Slots would that impact performace of other parts or not? I did not find anyting (for me understandable) in the manual of the Board.
Case: Fractal Desin R4
PSU: BeQuiet Power 10 600W
CPU: Intel I7 8700K
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 (i hope)
MB: ASUS ROG MAXIMUS X HERO
GPU: Nvidia GTX 1080TI (Zotac or MSI)
Other Stuff: ELGATO Game Capture HD60 Pro (for the 1X Slot)
Thanks in advance
