Will a Thermalright IFX-14 Fit Inside Antec 900 Ultimate Gamer Case?

Found a good deal for the ThermalRight IFX-14 Inferno and wondering if it will fit inside my Antec 900 Ultimate Gamer case.

Intel Core 2 Duo 8400 Currently OCed to 3.4GHZ on stock cooling, would like to get it up in the 4ghz+ range

  1. According to a reviewer in Newegg, it will, but you will have to remove the side panel fan.
  2. You can cut a few bits off the fan or the HS with no loss in performance.
  3. ^ Just dont cut the heatpipes!!
  4. I do not have a side fan on the Glass panel.. lol

    So i should have no problem?
  5. Should..... The amount you need to cut off the fan or heatsink would be a very very small amount. And the side fan really helps airflow. So get a side fan later if ya want.

    What you should do is measure the top of the CPU chip to the edge of the case. Then go to the Thermalright web page and look up the dimentions for that cooler.

    You'd have your own answer then, and be sure.
  6. Yes, well im not really worried about the 2 large heatsinks
    im worried about the heatsink coming from the back of the Mobo the small one

    Im wondering if THAT will be able to fit
  7. I dont think it goes out much further than the cpu cooler does.

    check it out...

    it should fit ( ;
  8. besides, i doubt it helps much...
  9. Ah thank you very much

    Also from your picture its seems that you had to make the fans face downwards... were you unable to rotate the heatsink without it covering RAM slots?
  10. Thats not my pic but i think it would block up ram slots ( ;
  11. ^ it might go over the ram slots come to think of it.
  12. Hmm ok, i dont think it will make too much of a difference either way
