The two holes are the access to the screws.
Noctua NH-C14S - since the case is insulated, a top blow cooler wouldn't fit
Fast-Nop2960123dThat's why I have a classic midi tower, and a bit wider than standard so that I can fit a 15cm cooler (front blower).
kamen548923dNo space to slap a 240/280 AIO somewhere?
JhonDoe311223dCare to share pic of yo rig?
Jilano3070223dSpeaking of CPU, have you seen he 5000 series announced last night? It's mighty interesting to see AMD coming back from the dead since the Ryzen 3000!
PS: The price increase in the mid tier models is unfortunate, though
The system was first built in Januar 2019… Because I needed an replacement.
My workstations usually last 4 - 5 years, then performance becomes an issue or something's bad (dead USB ports a common case)...
Upgrade was to get rid of the AsRock mainboard. Piece of Crap TM.

Shouldnt ypu install it 90° to the other side? Because it now looks like it is blocking airflow.
IntrusionCM402722d@Gregozor2121 Makes more sense to see the full build.
Yes there is an SSD flying round in the bottom corner. Me no cares. It's windows SSD.
The case has an thick insulation layer oj both panels.
The HDD cage left is connected to an RAID card unter the graphics card (for data / games).
In front of the HDD cage is an cooler which sucks air in (air flow inside the case).
At the top of the case, above the CPU cooler and right of the CPU cooler are two fans which blow hot air out (leading air flow outside the case).
Was the second reason I wanted the CPU cooler under the alu block. It now blows the cool air upwards, indirectly cooling the RAM.
What's not visible is that directly next to the big black heatspreader close to the left side of the CPU cooler are the capacitors.
That's the final reason I wouldn't rotate the cooler by 90 degrees... It would generate heat zone, as the heat spreader from the CPU would be directly above the capacitors. (and I think it wouldn't fit ;))
