Building a Matx Computer Clearance Issues

Hey guys,
I'm planning on building a new pc,
Thinking of going with a Micro ATX case. Specifically the Fractal Design Meshify C Mini.
Somewhat worried about clearances as I've seen reviews that say everything will fit fine, and others saying there are clearance issues. This build will be for gaming mainly and possibly some video editing.
So the question is for people who are more knowledgeable is, will there be any clearance compatibility issue between the EKWB EK-AIO 240 D-RGB Cooler and the Fractal Design Meshify C Mini Case?

Also my build will contain the following:
R7 3700x
ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2070
EKWB EK-AIO 240 D-RGB Cooler
Fractal Design Meshify C Mini

    Sorry, but I don’t remember asking?


    your question should be,

    any clearance compatibility issue between

    EKWB EK-AIO 240 D-RGB Cooler
    Fractal Design Meshify C Mini

    Should get a 2080 and just use the stock cooler.


    Should be fine, that case is pretty big. Looking at all the specs. Nothing seems out of order at all. Plenty of room.

    It will easily fit pretty much any 240. Since the ASUS ROG Strix is a pretty big boy (3 fan), I don't think you can front mount the EKWB, that means top mount which should be no issue. But note the 40mm maximum mobo component height so check your RAM height, all low profile RAM should do fine.


    I am currently looking to build a gaming desktop myself. At the moment, I am considering the following components:

    NZXT H510 Tempered Glass Computer Case - ($125-$139)
    ASUS TUF B450M-PLUS GAMING AM4 M-ATX Motherboard - ($149)
    AMD Ryzen 7 3700x - ($548.92 - $579)
    Nvidia Geforce RTX 2070 Super 8GB or RTX 2080 Super 8GB - ($749-$1299)
    Noctua NH-U12A Multi Socket CPU Cooler or Noctua NH-U12S - ($132.99-168.99)
    G.Skill Trident Z 16GB (2x 8GB) DDR4 3200MHz Memory - ($179)
    ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro M2 NVMe SSD 512GB or 1TB - ($191.99-$346.99)
    CORSAIR RM Series™ RM750-750 Watt 80 PLUS® Gold Certified Fully Modular PSU - ($189)

    I am thinking of just getting the RTX 2070 Super and not the 2080. I am still thinking whether to get a 512GB or 1TB SSD.
