the one with 250mm fan on the review section on newegg somepeople said thermal 120 extreme doesn't fit because of the 250mm fan on side.

This has been posted alot... I belive you cannot fit the thermaltake 120 with the 25cm fan installed, but it will fit without the 25cm fan. I'm not 100%, I've never tried it but that is what is said in most of the other posts.

so i guess other version of the case with out the 2500mm fan would be fine to fit thermal 120 extreme right?

any suggestion which be best for me antec p180b or thermaltake armor? armor has is full tower though.

Dude- with a 2500mm fan, you won't need that 120! :)

I have an Antec 900 with the Ultra 120 eXtreme installed. There is < 1/4" clearence from the 120 and the side panel. Look up the width of the 900 and the Armor; if the Armor's width is isn't significantly wider than the 900, then you're out of luck.

The version w/o the side panel fan will fit the TR Ultra 120 Extreme, from what I have read the one with the fan on the side cannot.

Personally, I'd choose the Thermaltake Armour over the Antec P180b, but that's a personal choice and someone might like the ANtec. Its up to you in the end. I'd skip the 2500mm fan as well, but again, that's my choice

Do you have a fan installed on the side panel of that 900 or no? I have a 900, but I put a 120mm fan on the side panel and am not sure if I will be able to fit the Ultra 120 Extreme for my next build.

antec nine hundred wide is - 8'1 inch
thermal armour wide is - 8.66 inch

p180b is good case but not bigger then thermal armour cause i dont want my cables to get in the way over the mother board making bottleneck.

Yes, I do have one of the 120mm fans installed in the side panel. However, I had to cut-off one of corners so that the side fan wouldn't interfere with the fan on the Ultra.

its not a thermal 120 its thermalright ultra-120

and i dont think that their should be a problem at all with the clearance, that case is ment to be filled and you really shouldnt have a problem. But if your still concerned just e-mail thermaltake about the armor case and say your mobo and how u want to use a thermalright ultra 120 and they should be able to let you know if it will fit

good luck

I email them still haven't receive response from them yet
but if do get the case with 250mm fan i can always take out 250mm by unscrewing it can i? cause its really cheap on newegg right now $120 $50 mail in rebate.

one more question

it says only can be controlled 4 fan? i'm going to have atleast 6 fan on my case.

can VANTEC NXP-205-BK Black Fan Controller Panel control more then 4 fan?

Thanks for this, I appreciate it.
Edit: Now to decide if it's worth it to upgrade from the Zalman 9700 to the Ultra 120 extreme.

It is ABSOLUTELY worth it! In fact, if I had a case that was too small to fit the Ultra 120 eXtreme, I would buy a NEW CASE! :)

It's a tough decision because the 9700 is a really good cooler. Once I get my new rig built with the 6850 I'll see how far the 9700 takes me with the oc and figure out if I need the Ultra 120 Extreme from there.

I think the link below will assist you in your decision. While you're at Anandtech, browse the rest of their cooler reviews and you will see that the U120x spanks them.

From your post, I gather that you are looking for a well cooled case. The Antec P180B you mentioned has been bettered by the P182. There are many very positive reviews of this case. It is quiet, cool, and best of all, has outstanding cable management capability. Look into it.

W hich the 9700 looks really good in. I'll see, if the 9700 can't cool the 6850 where I want it then I'll go with the Ultra 120 Extreme.

On my VA8003SWA the fan blades make contact with the tops of the heatpipes on my Ultra-120 Extreme. This is on a Striker Extreme mobo.
