fit into this case? (depth = 191 mm)

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.

    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.

  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. ^100% sure, take a look of THIS link and you can see a thermaltake V9 with a CM Hyper 212+ inside.
  5. link not working. tight fit?
  6. ^Yeah sorry for that. Check the link on the post.
  7. Excellent photos.

    Didn't think it would fit. Normal recommendation is for a case 8 inches wide.
  8. ^Thx, fit perfectly the problem is that is a old mobo and I want a 790FXTA for a better OC and general performance with DDR3 and a new ATI 58xx series.
