I am in a bit of a picke in regards to finding a fitting CPU cooler.
My case of choice is the Milo ml08 from Silverstone, and my CPU of choice is the Ryzen 2700x with a TDP of 95w, so a reasonable amount of cooling may be needed.
The specs say that there’s 58mm head room for the CPU cooler, though in reality, as per my own somewhat imprecise measurements, you can probably add 3 or 4mm to that.
I have so far been unable to find a suitable cooler, thus I’m asking for recommendations here.
I’ve had my eye on Noctua NH-L9x65 SE-AM4, which I’m quite sure won’t fit, though I have considered to go to extremes. Cut a suitable hole in the side panel, which can still be covered by the dust filter (~2mm), and delid the CPU (~2mm?), and boom, there’s room enough… In theory.
Anyway, before I start doing things I’m going to regret, I’d like any hints, advice, etc. you may be capable of giving. Perhaps there are coolers I’ve overlooked?
Thanks and best regards.
The Noctua NH-L9x65 SE-AM4 actually does fit. See my latest reply for details.
