Hi everyone, I was wondering if the Hyper 212 Plus or Evo will fit my Gateway DX4720-03. I've been trying to find this out for a while and I know even if it does fit it will be very cramped. I'm just not sure if it is a mid tower or mini tower..

Also, can anyone recommend another alternative cooler that will fit the LGA 775 socket and my case comfortably?

Edit: BTW can anyone tell me if using the old stock fan from a dual-core Pentium e5200 processor compatible with the Q9650 processor. They both use the same socket so I know it'll fit...but will it adequately cool it?

Here is a picture of the case:

Highly doubtful that cooler will fit that case.

The case is only 180mm wide, on the outside. The coolers are 158 and 159mm.
Leaving 21mm for the CPU, motherboard, standoffs, mb tray, and space behind the tray.

Not gonna fit.

Okay that's one big question out of the way, and I just edited the question before your answer so i'm not sure you saw it but do you think that a dual-core Pentium e5200 processor stock fan can adequately cool the Q9650 processor?

Probably not a good idea. The Pentium is rated 65W and the Q9650 95W. The Q9650 needs a better cooler IMO.

Okay thanks, I think i'll go with the ZALMAN CNPS8900QUIET then. I can get it for a pretty good price :)  Thank you all!
