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.

How wide is your pc case? 8 inches? 8.5 inches? 9 inches?

I measured the top of the case using a ruler and it was 18.5 cm - 7.3 inch

I wouldn't exactly be worried if it were 9 inches :sigh:

It seems good, but I only get the TRUE and the Ultima 90I where I live

The Ultima 90 is a great heatsink! I have 3.
