Default Re: Et Another “Best CPU Heatsink” :)

I just thought of something very scary! Will the Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme or any other major heatsink for that matter (most of them are very close in height to each other) fit in this case? This case has a huge 200mm fan on the side door would this be a problem? I can’t find much on the web, maybe because this is fairly a new case. Can someone help me find the answer plz?

I was able to find this review, where it sad it cannot!!! O no! The line is just on top where is sad "Finished Looks"

Thanks

Yes, I think it would fit. The ULTRA 120 Extreme is 163mm high and your case is a full tower, so it will fit. If the worst comes to the worse, you may have to take the side fan off, but it's unlikely that will be necessary.

not only will it cool your cpu it will also scare away burglars, destroy buildings and make all women fall in love with you. YES, it is that huge.



but on a more serious note, I'd probably go with the Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme.

Guys thank you for all the info.

If I can get a little more feed back from people about the computability issue with Ultra-120/xigmatek in COSMOS S case that would be sweet! I’m getting mixed information from other forums about this, not sure what to believe...Will it fit or not...?
