so i got a new case. and for all costs i wanted to put my pc in it so i had to cut some of the fins off my noctua nh-d15 to get it in. good enough for now but i'm looking for a new air cooler. problem is. the case has a max of 150 clearance. but after some investigation a 165mm wil fit. but the heatsink has to be higer away from the gpu (and a couple off mm more away from the memory side but a slight bend in the heatsink fixed that) my i7 7700k is currently delidded and replaced the TIM on the die with liquid metal aswel as liquid metal on the ihs to the cooler i dont have any max load readings yet since i'm still finishing the system but before any liquid metal stuff the max temps were 95c @ 5ghz max load i'm just looking for coolers that are the absolute best possible that would fit in this case. budget for a cooler would be around 200 euros max. i used to have a 360mm aio and that thing barely kept my x5670 cool at stock speeds so hence why i'm more intrested in air coolers atm. the case i am using is the thermaltake level 10 and from some rough measures it seems that the cooler has to be atleast 4~ cm away from the first pcie slot to properly fit in. https://imgur.com/a/S3Prqfe here i got some imagine of the disaster as you can see the little "lip" shows a nice indication to the max the cooler can sag down to. for those being mad about me destroying a 100 dollar cooler think of this. would you rather destroy a 100 dollar replacable cooler or a roughly 1500 dollar case thats very rare and hard to get by drilling holes into it to fit your cooler? thank you in advance for your tips and advice for what cooler to get.
