Case (Azza Solano 1000)

Any help is appreciated

Hi and welcome to Tom's forum.

The cooler is 125mm high while the case is 213mm wide, so, the cooler fit in the case without problems. Why you don't go with something better?

saint is right. The Zalman 9500 is, by todays standards, a mediocre cooler costing too much. If it weren't such a mediocre cooler, zalman would not have made the larger 9700 or the still larger 9900.

Get a Hyper 212+. It's less expensive and cools better.

Isn't the hyper 212+ 160 mm total? I'm worried that it won't fit. What about the n520?

The Hyper 212+ isn't a problem too, your case is wide enough for fit that cooler.
