I looking at buying the Phanteks PH-ES518XTG_DGS01 Enthoo Evolv X ATX Case and the Noctua NH-D 14. I know this thing is huge my question is will it fit in the case without issue?

Case: 190mm clearance for the CPU cooler

CPU cooler: 160mm tall

 

It will fit

The specs on the Phanteks website say the CPU clearance for that case is 190mm, and the height of the NH-D14 is 160mm, so yes it should fit.

I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.

Read the "Field" Manual?

 

Mine tells me exactly what the max cooler height is, I went a couple of mm less just to be sure.

Yes, it fits but I wouldn't recommend the NH-D14 if you don't have it already. The design is a bit outdated and there are generally better / cheaper options available.

the NH-D14 is an old design and has been replaced with the NH-D14S which comes with a single fan instead of a double. They claim it was redesigned so that a single fan on it works nearly as well as the older double. But you can still add a second fan and they even include the extra clips. I just got one for my rebuild that is in a 4u rack case.
