When your CPU cooler prohibits your GPU choice...

So, with the Vega 64 Liquid models finally getting back in stock, and the Fury Nano still commanding >$300 on eBay thanks to the cryptocurrency market, I have been keeping an eye on it if it were to go on a good Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale. I just now happened to think about if I could actually fit it in my case. The Corsair C70 isn't exactly a small case, but as you can see, there is a bit of a space problem thanks to the H115i's rigid tubes, only about 5/8 inch of space between the rear fan and the tubes. Rotating the pump is not an option (down would hit the GPU, right would hit the RAM, and top is just a nightmare), and flipping the radiator isn't an option. Mounting a radiator on the side panel is also not an option either because the H115i's tubes barely clear the side fans.

 

Here's hoping Navi brings a massive efficiency upgrade.
