    After spending the weekend building a new computer with an Antec P193 case, a Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R motherboard and an Akasa Nero S cooler, I just found out that I cannot close the case. The big fan in the left side panel clashes with the Akasa Nero S!!! :wallbash:

    Could anyone suggest an alternative cooler that fits both the motherboard and the case???

    Cheers,

    Real men leave their cases open :)


    How much do you need to reduce it by? The Fenrir is 4mm shorter than the Nero S. If it only JUST doesn't fit, that may sort it, and it's a killer cooler.

    Thank you all for the messages. I found a solution using a Noctua NH-U9B SE2. It is very good and small enough to fit inside the case. Cheers.
