Hi guys, I'm speccing up some stuff, just have a quick question:

Will the Tuniq Tower fit in the Thermaltake VA8003SWA edition with the additional 25cm side mounted fan? I have heard its a massive case, but I'm thinking the width might be prohibitive for the TT installation due to the big side fan.

Anyone?

Case: 22.1" x 8.7" x 20.9" ; 8.7" = 22cm

You need 15.5cm, the case is 22cm wide, unles the fan is 5+cm thick, no issue whatsoever

that pic would make a great sticky here. Just tried putting a tuniq inside an nzxt zero, looked great except for the bulge on the side of the case. had to remove two of the fans to make it happen :(

It will fit, sadly the side fan will basically rest against the tuniq tower when you close it.

thanks for the replies, sounds like it'll be a bit snug in the Armor. Do you think the CM stacker 830 would be a better option?

i got the armor w/ the side fan and the scythe infinity which is 16cm in height, it fits just right, there's like half to a cm between the side fan and the top of the heatsink, so I think you'll be fine with the TT since its 15.5 cm in height.
You can always take out the side fan and mount it on the outside...
