Heatsink Compatibility

Well...I have recently bought the case Azza Solano 1000R...However, due to its small size, after I installed the air cooler heatsink of Cosair, I was unable to close the case(putting the panel back) because of the darn heatsink and its two giant fans that blocks the side fan of the panel of the case. So I think I have to get rid of the heatsink and buy the one called CORSAIR CWCH50-1...But the question is the compatibility.]

I am not sure if this H50 will fit the darn Azza case...The case itself already has the back fan where we will mount the fan of the H50...So if I install the H50, assuming the H50 is compatible with the Azza case, I have to remove the back fan of the case...

So do ya guys think if the H50 is compatible with the Azza case and the motherboard GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366?

from what i see that is a FULL TOWER CASE
you've got 213 mm of width in that case you should be able to fit whatever you had in
what air cooler did you buy and didn't fit?
the H50 would for sure fit in that caase

The with of the radiator is 12cm and will fit on the 120mm fan on the back for the corsair fan. You will need about 8-10cm from the mobo to the side of your case. I just looked at your case and it should be ok as the H50 footprint is not very big.

just remove the side fan... and if needed get a slimmer fan later on if it will fit... or even better remove the side fan and get a 120 or 140mm fan installed at the bottom next to the PSU... that'll compensate for the side fan... no need to change the cooler or case or anything else...

BTW you never mentioned what cooler you installed...

My mobo:

my case:

The bad thing is I do not have much experience about buying cases. Besides, I do not really know how the measurement works. :cry: 

Just wanna confirm:
I have 6 sticks of 2gb ram...So I would like to install them all, but I have heard installing 6 sticks of 2gb ram is not really that stable.

Also are you guys sure that the cooler H51 will be compatible with my case?

For H50 you only need a 120mm fan vent... your bottom or rear fans vents should take care of this... just remember to use it as an inlet...

But i dont see why you would change the A70... It would fit into the case sans the side fan and i gave you a suggestion for this...

Thanks so much abully and almental for the reply and help. But I think I already bought the H50 heatsink because I would like the big side fan installed instead of removing it. As I have two graphic cards Radeon 6870 and 900w cosair power supply. And the cables of the power supply are huge, they jam up all bottom vent.

I should not have bought it but I gotta use the PC, so bought that in haste. Anyway, I am just wondering how good the H50 will be? Is it better than the A70 that I have?

Yup... its on par with top air coolers and definitely better than A70 by a few degrees... but scores + with its clearance to mobo heatsinks, memory etc... The only thing i hate about it is the noise the fans on the rad makes... especially the H70 which has a thicker rad...

I have got the heatsink...But not sure if it is better than any other ones. I check the temp, it seems that it is just the same as others.

Anyway, thanks for all you guys help.
