  1. The Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E will have no problem fitting into the CM Storm Trooper SGC-5000-KKN1.

    CM Storm Trooper SGC-5000-KKN1
    CPU cooler height: 186 mm / 7.3 in

    Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E
    170mm (with both TY-141 and TY-150 fans installed)

    Where you may run into issues is with the height of the Corsair Vengeance DIMMs. Get low profile DIMMs if you want to avoid that issue.

    Corsair low profile DIMM model numbers:
    CML8GX3M2A1600C9B
    CML8GX3M2A1600C9R
  2. i already bought the ram and cant return it.... would it be possible to run the cpu cooler fan in pull pull conflagration to avoid clearance issues with the ram

    You could or you can also mount the push fan so that it is raised high enough to clear the DIMM's heatsink since the computer case has the room to do that.
  4. I'm also getting this cooler. I have everything only need a case which will fit cooler.

    Build is :
    -ASUS Z87 Maximus VI Hero
    -Intel Core i5 4670K (3.40Ghz, 6MB) BOX
    -Corsair Vengeance LP Red 8GB 1866Mhz cl9 KIT - 1.50V
    -Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 2GB WindForce 3X OC
    -Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 1000GB 64MB
    -Samsung SH-224BB
    -Corsair Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W
    -Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme
    -CASE = ?

    I have in mind:
    -Thermaltake Level 10 GTS -175mm clearence (google)

    So does it fit in or should i get any other case (which is not Full tower and costs about same as Thermaltake) ?
