Im building a new computer on this box:


The problem is the hight, since the case is so low I'm not sure if I can fit a e4300 in there.
Ive been googling, calling customer support, asking everyone i know that knows a thing or two about hardware but NOBODY knows how tall the CPU fan on the e4300 is.


So, PLEASE, if you have a e4300 with stock fan open up your computer and stick a ruler in there and find out how high above the motherboard it reaches?

For the record: It cant be above 75mm to fit (3 inches).

thanks :=)

Stock Intel that I have in hand is about 65 mm high from copper base to top of the fan

Hope it help

It does, thanks.

65mm leaves me about 1cm air on top. Not much, but I think its gonna be enough. Its not like its gonna be running very hot anyways,

Thanks

I just counted it and from the mobo to the top of the cooler is 70mm. It's going to be a very tight fit....

mhm, i wonder what cooler Lian-Li has designed this case for then.. Even the low-profile coolers are like 6cm....

Even if i pick a smaller CPU, i will still have the fan problem...

Well, get something bigger! I agree that it looks very nice, but there are plenty of HTPC cases with nice looks that are higher than this one. You will not have trouble fitting normal expansion card either...

If you can mod a 1U server Heat sink and put it in this case, you won't have any height problems. 1U case is like 1/2 the height as the case you have.

You could always drill some holes in the top of the case, then you would be drawing cool air onto the heatsink. You really wouldn't be able to see them, and if you did a good job it wouldn't matter anyway.

I talked to Lian-Li about it, and there is no problem at all :) 

Yay for me!

Hehe
