No,you will be using that to mount the heatsink to the cpu socket.You can put the fan on the heatsink later,and then adjust it to fit your ram height
Ahhhh I see, understood. So to clarify, I wouldn't need to purchase anything extra in order to adjust the fan in this instance?

Funnily enough, I just got done with watching a review on another case I was looking at (The Corsair 650X) - Which compared it to another Lian Li case (O11 Dynamic)

I must admit, despite the review... I'm a pretty big fan of the "cable shoving" compartment that exists on the Corsair 650X. I'm a fan of easy cable management where I can get it and that case interests me as a result (Plus a friend has recently bought a computer and has that exact case, hence why it interested me.)

I'll check out the video!

I've got one more query.. Mostly surrounding the cases end of things now, I mentioned earlier about the Corsair 680X (https://www.scan.co.uk/products/corsair-crystal-series-680x-rgb-black-dual-chamber-mid-tower-pc-case-tempered-glass-windows-e-atxmit)

Unfortunately it doesn't appear to exist on PCPartPicker, so I thought I'd ask here.

Is this case likely to be compatible with my build? A friend has the same case with a 3090 and it does fit as shown here, though I appreciate his build is different to mine and as such there are likely size differences.

Yes it is.NhD 14 is 160mm tall and the case supports up to 180mm.But keep in mind that with the raised fan it will be taller than 160mm for sure

Hmmm... Very true. I think I'll stick with the Obsidian to be on the safe side. That case seems to be extremely spacious offering a 360mm on the front, 280mm on the top and 120mm on the back. That will be more than adequate for the space. I suppose I'll just have to be a bit more anal about my cables given that they will be visible :p

I think that pretty much answers all of my questions for now.

Thanks very much for your time everyone (Especially you Djoza) - Now the only issue really is to locate stock :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: - Best Answer has to go to Djoza due to his helpfulness throughout.
