Hi guys,

I am trying to figure out how to find out what type of case I need for my new Aorus 280mm AIO.
My current case which is the Cooler Master NR600 hasn't got the clearance to install on the top.
How can I refine a search for a case that will definitely have good clearance? the height of the radiator with fans is 55.8mm

Thanks for the help!

Just curious: why not return the 280mm and get a 240mm version instead? It shouldn't be too much of an added expense VS replacing an already good chassis.
Or just mount the hybrid cooler in the front? It will be OK as long as the pump isn't the highest point of the loop... unless that's actually the reason for not mounting it in the front - because of the ODD tray, for example?

Yeah I did return it in the end - I’ve also heard really bad things from folks about the particular cooler aswell. I have instead opted for the NZXT Z73. I have a tonne of space at the front so I thought this would suit me best
