Can this cpu cooler: (depth = 159 mm)

fit into this case? (depth = 191 mm)
http://thermaltakeusa.com/Product.aspx?C=1390&ID=1819

I'm building a new system to replace my 7 years old PC. I've all the specs in my mind.

Only 2 things left is the case and the cpu cooler. I'm going to order the above two. Anyone know if SpinQ VT fits in V9 case?

Thank you in advance. =)

P.S. If not, please feel free to recommend a cpu cooler + case combination. My criteria is:

- The case should have power supply dust filter. (the V9 has it)
- The cpu cooler should be quiet. The mediocre performance is fine.
- Budget: $200 for case & cpu cooler combined.

The cpu heatsink will not fit in the case.

The Thermaltake V9 case is 7.52 inches wide.

The Thermaltake SpinQ VT is a tower style cpue hatsink that 159mm tall.

Those tall tower style cpu heatsinks require a pc case that is at least 8 inches (204mm) wide and a case that is at least 8.5 inches wide if there is a case fan mounted on the side panel..

Have a look at the Lian Li / Lancool Dragon Lord cases. Th cases meets your requirements. They come in a variety of configurations and prices. Ventilation, airflow, cooling, fan noise, space, and cable management are excellent.

mwave.com has the lowest prices in the USA:

Here is a link to a very good web site with more useful information about cpu heatsinks that will help you make an informed decision:

You can use the Google embedded search feature at the web site to find more information about heatsinks for specific cpu sockets.

Personally, I'd recommend the Coolermaster Hyper 212+ cpu heatsink. It is much better than mediocre and represents a good value. If you shop carefully you can sometimes find it onsale for $29.99 in the USA.

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

^+1 to JohnyLucky], the max that you can install is the CM Hyper 212+, or one with the same specifications.

Saint19 - Are you sure? The Coolermaster Hyper 212+ is 158.5 mm tall. It won't fit in the Thermaltake V9 case case either. On the other hand the Dragon Lord cases can accomodate it with room to spare.

Excellent photos.

Didn't think it would fit. Normal recommendation is for a case 8 inches wide.
