Zalman 9900MAX in Azza Solano 1000 Case Will it Fit?

Hey guys,

Due to the side fan on the Azza Solano 1000 case, Azza says that the largest heatsink it can fit is 150mm in height. This Zalman CNPS9900MAX cooler is 152mm and it is very good. I've read on a couple forums the people squeezed other 152mm heatsinks into their Solano case. HAs anybody tried this particular combination.

Also note that the Zalman CNPS9900A and CNPS9900NT are both the same size and shape as the version i stated above, so if you've used those in an Azza Solano Case please let me know!

oh and i'm looking to OC the hell out of an intel 2500k on an msi p67a-gd80 mobo.

thanks in advance!

Not really.

It's easy. You need go to the manufacturer's web page of both, cooler and case

Case: http://www.azzausa.com/Product-Case-Solano1000R.asp
Cooler: http://www.zalman.co.kr/eng/product/Product_Read.asp?id...

After that, compared the wide size of your case with the high size of the cooler, plus ~5mm more that add the CPU socket when you install the cooler. So, in your rig:

Case: 213mm with side fan, so, the real space is ~180mm
Cooler: 152mm plus ~5mm when is mounted in the mobo, so, ~160mm

Your case is wide enough for fit the cooler.

that makes sense but i've seen people in threads who have talked to azza and azza said the largest height is 150mm. though, if a case is 213mm wide and a heatsink 152mm tall it essentially leaves me 6 centimeters of room. assuming about 3cm for the fan, and another 2-3cm for the space between the motherboard and the side of the case. it'll be a tight squeeze if you factor all that in so i'm interested to see if anybody has done it

Months ago, thermaltake said me that the Hyper 212+ doesn't fit in my old case Thermaltake V9. Two weeks after that, I wrote the guide in my sig where you can see the Hyper 212+ inside the Thermaltake V9 without problems.

hmmm i'd like to spend less money and get the Hyper 212+ but that is listed at 159mm. i will toy around with the case when it is delivered and see what i can fit and i'll probably post again. thank you!
