I ordered this configuration, but the webshop told me there might be a conflict between those two.

Does anyone here has experience with these two components?

The webshop thinks that, due to the large cooling blocks on the motherboard itself, they won't be able to put the water-cooling at the top for optimal placement. They suggest two alternatives: Placing the water-cooling at the front of the case or switching the the smaller Kraken X52.

What do you guys think? Will it be a problem? Is the placement in front of the case still ok? Or do you recommend switching to the smaller one? I already read several comments that even the X62 is "underpowered" for the I9-9900K..
