My motherboard (MSI 970A-G46): http://www.msi.com/product/mb/970A-G46.html#?div=Detail

My CPU (AMD FX-4100): http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Bulldozer/AMD-FX-Series%2...

My GPU (MSI 560 Ti Hawk): http://www.msi.com/product/vga/N560GTX-Ti-Hawk.html

So, I want to install into this configuration following:

CPU cooler (Hyper 212 EVO): http://www.coolermaster.com/product/Detail/cooling/cpu-...

VGA cooler (ARCTIC Xtreme PLUS II): http://www.arctic.ac/en/p/cooling/vga/375/accelero-twin...

I'm looking forward for your answer guy, since I have to decide which one I will buy in following 2-3 days !

Thank you!

The ARCTIC VGA cooler will fit, but the Hyper 212 won't, due to limited width of the case.

Well, which CPU cooler do you recommend then ? I was measuring my case yesterday, and I have like ~17 cm from motherboard to the end of the case. Are you sure that Hyper 212 won't fit ?

Btw, I replaced Xtreme Plus II with Turbo Twin II : http://www.arctic.ac/en/p/cooling/vga/375/accelero-twin...

Will this one fit ?

If it's exactly 17cm then it would fit, since hyper 212 EVO only needs 16cm. Most cases with 185mm or less width can't fit the hyper 212 EVO. This one could be exceptional.

As for the VGA cooler you replaced: yes, it will fit nicely. Not a big cooler, after all.

Just to be safe, I'm going with http://www.coolermaster.com/product/Detail/cooling/cpu-... -> Hyper TX3 EVO

90 x 79 x 136 mm (3.5 x 3.1 x 5.4 in)


This one is enough for now :)
