Hi all,

gathering all the parts, recently saw this post on redit.

anyone experienced the same thing, with the Aorus X570 mobo + Noctua C14S?

I remember that post on Reddit. The OP of that post did a follow-up post yesterday in a bigger case and someone else mentions that they got the C14S to fit on the Aorus in the M1. They had to ask Noctua for another bracket that let them switch the orientation of the cooler.

Here's a link to the comment chain.

Thx, you could stick with the 140mm fan then as well

Correct, the 140mm fan will work but you need to get a bracket pack from Noctua (they only include the smaller AM3/4 bracket when you buy new) that will rotate it 90 degrees and it will then clear the top panel. Depending on your GPU's backplate it may end up touching the heatpipe tips so keep that in mind

I downloaded frontal images of some motherboards, the center of the socket of the asrock x570 is about 4.5mm lower located. If i measure from the center socket to the top edge of this motherboard i get 63.2mm. i did read on the forum elsewhere that you have about 10mm extra to the top panel.
With the noctua c14s you need 75mm, it will be very much on the edge of possible.
I guess that the other mounting (as above, the vertical) will not be possible on the asrock x570, cooler and GPU backplate are touching each other .
I did check on the Asus B450 & X470 and B450 Asrock (those have all 71mm to the edge of the board),
