Hello, I've finally bought almost all the parts for my new build. Currently it's looking like this-

Case | Fractal Design Meshify C ATX Mid Tower Case | Purchased For $0.00
Power Supply | SeaSonic FOCUS Plus Gold 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply | Purchased For $0.00

The 1060 I am cannibalizing from my current build (I have my old 7850 I can stick in it) until I get a new GPU and monitor. For now the only things I have left to get are the motherboard and possibly a CPU cooler. Is this CPU cooler a good choice, or will it have issues in my chosen case? I know I'll have to update the bios on the motherboard via USB. Currently I only plan on doing a bit of gaming (Nioh 2 is the only modern game at the moment) and possibly some drawing, so I'm debating if it's even worth it to get a CPU cooler or stick with the stock. In my 8+ years using my 2500k I have never overclocked and never plan on doing it with this either, so that's not a concern either.

Yes I've heard it's the best cooler, but after research it seems I might have issues with the second fan fitting the ram. I'm not sure if pcpartpicker accounts for that. So I might need to use the D15S.
