Hi guys!

I got a big, old ,but still good performance cooler: Thrmaltake Bigtyp 14pro


Heatsink Dimension: 156(L) x 155(W) x 128(H) mm

Will this beast fit into new mATX cases like: NZXT Vulcan or Inwin Dragon Slayer?

Thx for help!

Since it's only 128mm tall yes it will fit in the cases.
Bigger question is how many dimms it will block ? since it's wide.
What's the base height? since that will determine if your ram will fit under it.

The extended heatsink dimension:


Heatsink direction
LGA775:


I guess the Bigtyp needs approx 1,5-2cm free space above the motherboard to fit.
The question is how much space these mATX cases have at the top?
