CPU cooler to fit a mATX Case - APEVIA X-QPACK2

I was thinking of building in a mATX case like this, but was curious what CPU cooler I could fit in there besides the stock intel one? I read 1 review that a Thermalright HR-01 fit, but was curious if anyone had other ideas.....

More about cooler matx case apevia qpack2
  1. perhaps like a zalman 92mm: let me see if i can find the link
  2. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118223

    not the greatest cooler but its not bad either.
  3. why get this case?? i hear they are vary crampt and have airflow issues. what about an antec 300 or 900. the 300 is cheaper and if you get the rebates so is the 900.
  4. I have built several times with this case and it is tight inside. The HSF can be no more than 76mm in height. Here's a link to the manual, scroll to the bottom, it gives you the spec's to the HSF, Video cards and such.

    Best to use all SATA HDD's & ODD's.

    i just liked the look of it, and reviews looked ok. I will check out the antec 300\900 Models now....Thanks for the suggestions!


    EDIT:
    did you have a link for this case? I am ordering 1005 from newegg, as going to do the 6 mo 9or 12 mo) no payments as I am a little shy of my grand total, as i need to get a new monitor as well....
  6. This CPU cooler was made for mATX cases, and is a great performer:

    That HSF will not fit without cutting the harddrive support. HSF height 77mm only.
  8. Wow really? that sucks. Hm. it looks like thats a very small case you have!

    yeah, I like that 900 model...i have it saved under my alternate configuration for a full tower....I prob should just go with this form factor, as it's not going to get moved unless it needs to be worked on.....
  10. Uh yeah like don't get that case please. Airflow sucks and room is a big problemo.

    Go with the Antec 900. I have that one and its awsome.
  11. Ok...made up my mind. I'm getting a 3.0 Intel Duo, and plan on overclocking a bit in the future, so more air the better....guess it's back to a full tower. i wanted to put it up on a shelf....guess I can make a lower shelf......
  12. there are other mATX cases out there with better case clearance isnt there?
    So you can use the upper shelf
