Hello all.

I would like to ask, if i can fit both of these. CPU Cooler Noctua NH-D15 and Accelero Xtreme IV installed on GPU. I don't have one of them yet, because i am not sure if i can fit them together in case. Probably it could be problem, but i am really not sure.
I have case Fractal Design Define R5 and MB : Asus Tuf Gaming Z490-Plus.

Do you think it's possible to have installed both? Will be there any problem or no? Someone who got this combination would be nice to share your experience.

Thank you for reply! :)

With a little searching, I found this:

That's not the Accelero 4, but take notice of the distance between the gpu PCB and the D15's heatsink.

I think it's safe to say that the combo you want won't fit.

I just did some research and i think Noctua NH-U12A will fit perfectly. Width is 125mm, which is smaller than my actual CPU cooler Scythe Ninja 4. So thats solved. Even better performance i expecting with noctua. Thanks for your opinions and your tips. I really appreciate it.

Just for information, if someone needs it. Noctua NH-U12A and Arctic Accelero Xtreme 4 fit together without any issues even with backplate ( heatsink ) from accelero installed.
