Default Components too close together

I was reading the specs on my buddies cooling fan, a really nice one it is. There was a little note on it, that read like this:

No motherboard components with a height greater than 39mm (1.53inch), as well as the
PSU, disk drives, VGA card, and RAM should be present within a 68mm (2.68 inch)
radius from the center of the CPU.

someone tell me why this is? It honestly dosent seem logical to me. But there is a reason for it, or else they wouldnt have said it.

Never mind, it was a stupid question and it answered itself for me. I cannot delete the post though, so it's still here. If some Mod comes along, feel free to delete this post.
