For the price of the V6 you can go for better coolers like Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme... though the V6GT is one of the better coolers from CM for a 1155 build i would suggest the CM hyper 212+ which should be enough to handle the SB cpu's... and is smaller and shorter than the v6 and should fit the Raidmamx Smilodon even with the 80mm fan in the side... the V6 GT will fit if you remove the side fan...
Really? I had measured and it looked like the side panel would still hit it even with that fan dropped to the lower mounting.
Oh well, I already exchanged it for a Zalman 9900.
I didn't want to mount the V6, find out I couldn't close the panel and have to go through unmounting it and cleaning off the thermal paste. The V6 really looked sharp and Microcenter had it on sale that's why I went for it. They exchanged it no questions asked though so no harm no foul. The Zalman should do just fine and do way more than whats needed.
