Hello,
i have question about NH-D15 chromax black, is a possible to use this cooler in Meshify C tempered glass case?

https://www.kingston.com/dataSheets/HX432C16FB3K2_16.pdf


I found, the maximum cooler height in meshify C dark tempered glass is 172mm? or 170mm?
The NH-D15 height is 165mm with 32mm clearence height ram in front.
I have 2xmodul ram with 34,1mm height.
When i want to use the front fan on NH-D15, I have to move front fan up a bit.
The final clearence is 172mm-(165+(34,1mm-32mm)=172-167,1=4,9mm clearence between maximum cooler height and tempered case glass ??

The link to the Fractal case states 170mm max clearance for tower air coolers.

The D15's ram clearance in the default 165mm position is actually 31mm. At 32mm, the ram and fan are liable to make contact, and the vibration from the fan can damage the memory channels over time.
So it's ideal to leave like a 1mm of space in between them to avoid that.

The HyperX ram is 34mm tall... 34-31=3... 165+3= about 168mm total to the D15.

If you're not comfortable with that, you can simply install the front fan to the back of the cooler - remove 120mm case fan if one is present back there; it's just going to get in the way being that close to a 140mm fan.
If it's another 140mm - no complaints with that.
