I'm running the i7 920 inside an antec 300 case and

EVGA 141-BL-E757-TR LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX X58 SLI LE Intel Motherboard



I'm having trouble finding a good sized heatsink that fits inside this case, can you recommend me something that is not to wide?

I think a Core Contact Freezer 92mm should work with that case.

The problem is not the 300. I built a few computer with the 300 and I never had any problem fitting True 120 or Scythe Mugen RevB.

The problem is that the socket on some Evga board is quite close to the edge of the PCB. Some heatsink will let your install both horizontally and vertically. In your case, the heatsink horizontally with the fan at bottom, blowing up toward the 140mm top exhaust fan is a possibility I think.

Edit: If you install that way, make sure the heatsink will clear your memory sticks.
