Hello, I bought a Corsair h115i cpu cooler for my i9-9900k. The tower I got for it was a Cooler Master HAF X Full tower. I read somewhere that it would be compatible but i started building it and doesn’t seem like so. I don't know what my best option is. I was planning to do a modification to the case and drill 4 new holes for the cpu cooler.

Case:

Cooler (version 2 fan slots (140mm):

Here are links to what the case holes currently look like:

Does anyone have any better ideas? Thank you for your time and assistance!

Won't fit. 280mm is too big. Can only fit 240mm max. The largest cooler that will work will be the 110i.

PS. You didn't just recently buy that case, did you?
The 110i is also 280mm.
I got the case a long time ago. I can't really find any liquid cpu coolers that are 250mm
