uhm, better give full components list as there are more limitations then just the CPU cooler height.

 

Also, what about your preferences in lighting, colour scheme, size, weight and balance between airflow and noise level?


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

 I love my MB500 case from cooler master has a lot of airflow and the only bad thing is you can’t mount an Liquid Cooler at the top.  The site says 163mm Air Cooler height but I have 168mm Air Cooler in mine.  So their cooler height is wrong.   And it comes with three RGB fans at 1200 rpm’s each.  Goes for $70 right now on Amazon/Newegg but I bought mine for $40 on Amazon when it was on sale.

There's the Meshify Dark TG if you're into that, another choices are the Cooler Master H500 Mesh, Fractal Meshify S2 (bigger Meshify C, reaching R4 level of big) and R6. Doubt why you'd want the R6 from an R4 though, they arent that different.
