Corsair h100i v2 and Corsair 500r compatible?

As the title states, for my new build I'm planning on getting a Corsair 500r, and I'm curious as to whether or not the h100i v2 cooler will fit, as I've heard the V2 is a little bigger than the h100i ( the radiator at the top of the case is my primary cornnce). Also, If it doesn't happen to fit, are there cases or different coolers I should look into that might make things easier?

not a good case choice these days, but the cooler fits. the 500R was made specifically to house the H100 series coolers, and not much else.

That's kinda what I figured. Are there any cases you could recommend that would be better suited for it?

better than the 500R, like dozens, but some really good mid towers out now are:

  • Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Acrylic
  • Fractal Design Define S window
  • Corsair Carbide 400C
  • InWin 303

Thanks! I'll look into some of these, and hopefully find something that works better!
