This is the case you have?



Honestly, if you just want to improve airflow - leave the front panel open as pictured.

Lots of cases accommodate an NH-D15, and it's a great cooler. But it does limit your options. I wouldn't look to 'upgrade' to an AIO though, as for the most part, they're not going to improve temps by more than a couple of degrees maximum.

I've used various cases to accommodate my NH-D15. Phanteks Enthoo EvolvITX (when I had a mITX board), Fractal Design R5 and, lately, a Fractal Meshify C.

Anything with >165mm CPU cooler clearance is fine. For improved airflow, you're looking for something with a mesh front panel (or similar).

Yes with mesh or simular but i wold like case to be more higher if you can see an pic its close to my top 140mm.I have ATX bord.Idk about AIO for now becuse electricity and water don't match :).Soo one friend sugested me to buy h500p mesh.Its exspensive.But i will look more.I can buy x62 kraken for price of h500p mesh .

It is, but what are you expecting to achieve by making the move? Increasing the clearance between the cooler & top fans isn't going to improve much at all

Are you actually dealing with any temperature related issues?

As long as you don't have everything stuck in a tiny case, yours should have more than adequate airflow as is...

Any new case will not make much more than 1-2 C difference in any temps anyway....
Tnx i know i have old case that is good i will brig it :) (Termaltake armor revo v2)
