Question NZXT H500 case with Arctic Liquid Freezer II 240 or 280?


Jan 6, 2019
I am in the process of upgrading my hardware and just recently purchased a 5800X3D. I was looking for an optimal cooler for it and was recommend the Arctic Liquid Freezer II. My only concern is with how thick the radiator is, and if either the 240 or 280 would fit in my case? I know it’ll have to mount to the front and I’ve heard people share that with removing some mounting bracket, it’ll fit snug? Just wanted to see if anyone had similar experiences with these same models of hardware. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Here’s a list of my parts that could be of importance with fitting cooler in my build:

MOBO: B450 Tomahawk Max

RAM: 4x8GB @ 3200mhz

GPU: 3070 Founders Edition

PSU: 600W (upgrading to 850W)
