NH-C14S - I NEED PROFESIONAL HELP!

rasesh

Hey guys, i have ran into a problem where the NH-C14S cpu cooler's end part is running into/touching my GPU.
The only way out that i see is to cut the end of the pipe by 3-5mm.
Will this in anyway ruin the heatsink?

Here is a picture of where i would like to cut it:

That will destroy the heatsink as those heatpipes are hollow.

 

Your best option would be to get a pcie 16x riser

nooo there is stuff in there

 

Isn't it just a pipe?  is it hollow or solid?

if it's solid it would be perfect.

But i don't know.

This is THE most logical option.

It's hollow and contains something important of which idk the name but cutting it would ruin it.

The slot for the gpu is located at one location.

Just in case you wanted someone else to tell you not to do it.  Don't do it.

 

Can you rotate the cooler at all so the heat pipes aren't in the way?  I don't know how the mounting solution for that cooler works.

But i don't know.

no there are gases and sometimes liquids in there that transfer the heat if you cut it you  will lose a ton of cooling.

(scroll near the end for finihed build pictures)

 

I wanted to make this EXACT build.

The problem i ran into is the fact that my motherboard (all z170 motherboard) pcie slot is closer to the cpu socket then the older mitx motherboards.  Hence the exact same cooler tocuhes the gpu.

If you rotate the cooler either 90 or 180 degree it should be fine, with intel sockets it can be tuned in any 4 direction.

How hard (/\/\/\/\/\/\) can that be?

Just turn it

 

Guess so, it's going to ruin the whole look of it though because with the oreitntation done the some way as the link i provided it looked really nice as the whole window showed that it was coevered by metal.

Anyways, whatever.

Thanks everyone!

Any other ideas? shoot them my way.

Yes, the evga hadron air.

 I SO did not read that as "hadron", and thought that's such a good name for a hardcore enthusiast component.
