Can my case fit this heatsink? HELP!!! Tags: Power Supplies Overclocking Cases Heatsinks Components Last response: March 13, 2009 3:43 PM in Components Share rags_20 March 12, 2009 4:52:28 PM First, I did not post this in the overclocking section because I do not want to overclock. Ok, so I have a case that is mostly unknown to all of you- the Mercury KM 08. I am really bothered about whether it is wide enough to accommodate the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme. This is really important to me as I recently reseated my stock Intel heatsink and the thermal paste has not set properly and I do not have any left (I know I could just buy AS5, but........) I was running Auto Gordian Knot to encode a video today and temps. were as high as 80C. This is very high for a Q6600 (it is quite cool at where I live now) So, I want to know if the TRUE will fit in my case and if I will have to run it with a fan i.e. can I run it without a fan.
