Hello my current cpu cooler fan(conical 92mm-120mm) is damaged and I am in search for a better cooler like the hyper 212 red led.
Now the problem is that the cpu cooler is bigger than my case can accomodate(150mm) so I have to mount it horizontally bottom to up exhaust rather than the traditional vertical front to back exhaust setup.
I have searched for many coolers but have noticed hardly any in the 150range with good cooling.
I am from India so beQuiet and Cryorig isnt available here.

So my question is that if i mount it like that will it hamper cooling in any way?

Noctua are also an option.If i may ask why not just go for AIO?Here in South Africa i had the same problem.My case only support cpu coolers up to 160mm so was forced to go AIO route and i haven't look back since.
