    ok! you're case is 8.1 inches wide so it can accomodate the 160mm high tower style cpu heatsinks.

    Here is a link to a recent Tom's Hardware article with useful information about 10 popular cpu heatsinks:,2535.html

    I know the article states Intel LGA 1156 heatsinks but just about all of them are also compatible with Intel LGA 1366 cpu's

    Here is a link to a very good web site with more useful information about cpu heatsinks that will help you make an informed decision:

    You can use the Google embedded search feature at the web site to find more information about heatsinks for specific cpu sockets.

  7. My son's 920 which reached 4.4 GHz (72 max vcore temp) on a Prolimatech Megashadow w/ IC Diamond 7 Karat as the TIM. The Megashadow is really no different than the less expensive Megahalems; it's it's not like ya can even see the fancy metal finish once it's installed ....... looks cool in box tho :) .....

    He has twin Enermax Magma fans in a push pull configuration but if we had to do it over, woulda done this (Megahalems, two PWM fans, IC TIM and Y cable PWM splitter):
