I have a HAF_X and to keep from hitting the board I had to mount three fans under the lid. My Rad is only 30-35mm deep though. I have maybe 25mm more space before hitting the boards VRM heatsinks.

Wouldn't the Asus Sabertooth X79's VRM(MOSFET) be slightly below the radiator in height?Tae a look at this:http://koolance.com/...700.jpg.Here,is a waterblock for the MOSFETs.Would it work with the radiator(enough space)?By the way,I would remove the top 200mm fan anyway.The thing that I want to do is keep the pull fans just below the mesh panel.Then the radiator and after that the push fans.I hope that the radiator is a little higher than the MOSFETs to allow me to use the MOSFET waterblock.So the total space required between the rad and the motherboard is 25+80mm=105mm as the pull fans are above the radiator mounting point plane but below the mesh panel.If this won't work should I get the Corsair 800D or even the 900D or any other case?

Asus Maximus X Apex

Corsair 16GB DDR4
