  1. what is the space you have between the board and the case side since this is a slim case you will need a short cooler .
  2. around 5 inches cubed max space - thats an educated guess..
  3. i would check with them and see what they have to offer you http://www.overclockers.co.uk/search_results.php?keywords=low+profile+coolers&cat=2330 that a good place .

  4. I masurd my fan from on one side andfrom hole to hole it s around 65mm... upon cheking i hav around 3 to 4 inches cubed space maximum...

    the hole in the board are always at the same distance the thing you have to check from inside the case that the fan and cpu cooler are below those measure to fit in the case Width: 10.79 cm (4.25 inches) then you made your choice on the link give a look at the noctua 9 but if you contact them they will suggest a few one that will fit in your case that goes to the budget you have for it .
