Hi! I'm about to build my first pc and I've been reading a lot of reviews online the last couple of days. I think i've settled for an NZXT H200i case and i'm struggling to figure out if its possible to fit a noctua nh-d15 in this pc case. It says here on the site that it's possible, but i've stumbled upon several other places where they think its too big and wont fit the case. Anyone who has tried or know if its compatible? If not - any ideas for a CPU Cooler for this build - or any other things i have to bare in mind before shopping? :-)

Thanks a lot in regards

SPEC: CPU: I7-9700K GPU: MSI Geforce Rtx 2060 Super Gaming X 8GB CPU Cooler: Noctua chromax NH-D15 (or your suggestion) Motherboard: Gigabyte Z390 I Aorus Pro WiFi RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB 3200MHz DDR4 SDRAM DIMM 288-pin Power supply: Corsair CX-M Series CX650M 650Watt 80 PLUS Bronze Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD: 500GB M.2 2280 PCI Express 3.0 x4 (NVMe)

It sure does. If still confused, here's a few thousand words:

Case cooler clearance is 165mm

Chromax d15 height is 165mm

So... I would prolly get something a little bit shorter to be on the safe side.

edit. hmm transit's link shows it fits, with a few mm to spare by the looks of it.

For your build I think you're a little cpu heavy and gpu light but it really depends on your monitor & what you'll be using it for.

It's more convenient for posters if you use the "system builder" tab to make your parts list then post the permalink or markup table. You might wanna mention your max budget too, if that's substantially different to your current parts list total.
