Question about CPU Cooling

Will the Noctua 6 work with a DH67BL Intel Motherboard ? I am buying an i5 2500k and was wondering if this cpu cooler would be compatible with my current mobo

Case is a Thermaltake v3 Black Edition

Has a side window no side door fan.

Measures 7 1/2"

From Motherboard to Edge of case is 6.5"


Dimensions of Noctua 6 is: 6.2 x 5.5 x 6.3 inches ; 2 pounds

Will this fit ? I mean it looks like it might be a tight fit, But I think it will go

  1. 7 1/2" is the outside dimension of the case, and the heatsink you picked is 6.3" high.

    From the 7 1/2" you need to deduct the motherboard standoffs, mounting plate, and side panel dimensions.

    Only an actual tryout will tell the true story of whether the heatsink will fit.
