I want to buy a new cooler for my pc. I read that cryorig h7 is a really good budget cooler, but can be problems for fitting it on your motherboard. I have an Asus prime H27M-plus motherboard, intel i7 7700 cpu and 1 stick of hyperx Fury RAM.

It's not the MoBo that defines if you can use a CPU cooler or not, it's the CPU cooler clearance of your PC case. H7 is 145mm tall and you need to check your PC case specs if it fits in there.

Btw, i, personally, wouldn't use H7 due to it's sleeve bearing fan. I'd rather opt for Arctic Freezer 33 or 34 series or Be Quiet! Dark Rock (Pro) series with fluid-dynamic bearing fan on them.

Thanks for the recommendation and the information about coolers. I will most likely buy the arctic Freezer 34 Esports duo. Btw my case is Antec GX-500.
