Ok so doing a build for a friend.  I am using the Cooler Master Elite 130 case and the build is built around the Ryzen 5 1600.  Look at the first image, there is barely any room between the Ryzen's heatsink fan and the PSU.  What a funky design!  In the second picture you see the case fan installed and I am assuming this is why that fan is there.


Will this be ok or is this just going to be trouble?

yeah fix this its bad news, for as good as the AMD stock cooler is here it would be useless due to how small things are.

Get a low profile cooler such as the Noctua NH-L9i

Doesn't look good, particularly with a fairly hot running CPU.  The fan, I suspect, will not shift much air due to the tiny gap.  That would be one instance where I would consider going with a 120mm AIO water cooler, which can be fitted in the front of that case.

Try it first....there is a gap above the fan, might be enough, although it doesn't look good.
