Honestly with as many factors as you have for a correct fit I would just go with a H70 or go full liquid cooling.

If you aren't familiar with a dremel I'd get real familiar or not do it ya know.

All of that info is posted at the Noctua website. Noctua.at - sound-optimised premium components "Designed in Austria"!

Nothing is ever totally idiot-proof

When you pick parts out because your planning on watercooling and then you change your mind these types of situation arise. It's not "strange", it's just poor planning.

I've thought more and more about this... I'm going to return the Noctua and go liquid cooled.

I think that would be in your best interests. It costs a little more to do it properly, but with the parts you already have why cheap out now.
