    Will this cooler be able to have kingston hyperx fury underneath it

    Response by jonathana
    I'm not sure about the question? This is a PSU cooler. If you are worried about space you should measure them up and see if they will fit on the space on your board, it also depends on the layout and form factor of your board.
