Typically (in older cases), you’d need to take out the motherboard to install a new cooler. The giant cutout for your cooler’s backplate should make life easier. With the solution mentioned above, you can reach it from both sides without the unpleasant experience of removing your motherboard from the chassis.




There are two cutouts on the right side of the motherboard.


There’s about 12 cm for the combination of the fan and the radiator at the side. At the side, you can see a place for two 120 mm fans (or two 140 mm ones), or you can install an LCS there, provided that it’s nothing more extensive than a 280 mm rad. 



A 120 mm fan is pre-installed at the back. It’s powered by a 3-pin cable (that’s fine), non-RGB. Luckily there’s no Molex connector, so guys from Hyte corrected another thing. You can easily mount a 120 mm AIO in there instead.  These 120 mm fans have a relatively low number of blades with fairly steep angles, indicating that they’re rather low-pressure products. 


The case has six half-size PCI card slots secured with screws and four vertical ones.


At the top of the chassis, there's a place for up to 360 mm radiator (but it should be a thin one) or 3x 120 mm fans.



In the HYTE Y40, you can find a bundled PCIe 4.0 riser, with an "insert" to the motherboard made in a colour of the chassis.
