So I'm pretty lazy and I was wondering if I could install an aio water cooler while everything else is already in the case, so I don't have to take everything out. Can you do it or is there some things that get in the way?


thanks

Depends on your pc case.

Some have a cut out around the cpu allowing for backside access if needed for the proper mounting hardware.

Take the right side panel off and you will have your answer.

Also depends on motherboard and what cpu socket.

For the AM4 socket and Corsair H60 AIO I did not need backside access.
