It will be interesting to hear how much the 9900K adds to the heat, given the thermals on that CPU. A real monster, but the motherboard should handle it fine. I agree about increasing the height, I think it will help. I actually had ordered some replacement feet from the Corsair Carbide case, but the front and rear feet on that case have different dimensions - so I didn't install them yet.

Good luck with your upgrade!
