The performance is Crazy STUPID Fantastic for the money spent...take a look at the Cooler Master cooler and 523 folks didn't go wrong...nor did they buy it for nothing...this thing performs like no other and at $35 that's Crazy!!!

Take a look at this as well...http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

for almost 3X the price and I don't see any better performance for all that extra money but it does perform well... but is even larger!

I believe they both could be mounted into your case but you might lose a 120MM fan on your side window...

I really believe in the most "bang for your buck" and the first one Definitely does exactly that and does it extremely well with a proven track record of excellent cooling especially with overclocking!!!

Hope this helps :)
