Hi there, don't have my ncase yet. Wondering your opinion on installing a nh-c14s on my asrock z390itx before or after putting the mobo in the case? I can see that if I do it before it will be easier to install the heatsink, but obviously harder to install the mobo with a giant heatsink on it.

I always always install de cpu cooler outside of the case regardless the heatsink model. It´s a nice place to grab de thing, but do it however you feel more confident. If it´s de first time you do it, you´ll probably plug it and unplug it like a thousand times. 😅
