I have an i5 2500k at stock 3.3Ghz speed. I am wanting to overclock it now so I have been looking at some aftermarket CPU fan/heatsink. I am worried about the size of this because when looking inside my case and where the CPU is, it doesn't look like I have much room.

Here is the CPU cooler I am looking at.

Does anyone else have this same setup or know for sure if this will fit?

Thanks for the help.

The Xigmatek Gaia is only $20 right now: and cools within 1C of the Crappermaster per Frostytech reviews. It is also quieter. I have two of them, and it keeps my overclocked AMD 970BE nice and cool; I haven't checked in a while but I think I hit 42C during some games (idle at 29C-32C depending on season). Why spend more?
