These are all very good coolers.

The FRIO and V6GT offer the best cooling performance but are big 165mm tall and a little noisier then most.

Your biggest issue will be finding a cooler that doesn't cover your dimms and cause clearance issues.

The 212+ has the best width to avoid ram issues.

What ram do you have and how many dimms are filled?

Btw the Tuniq Tower Extreme 120 is on sale at the Egg and currently out of stock.

It's a very capable cooler and has very good mobo and ram clearance dimensions.

Yep! i have that ram kit it's 33mm tall so no worries.
The Frio will be a tight fit in your case.


I just now purchased 2 sets of everything. I am building my brothers computer also. I have the Storm scout case and he bought the new Antec 1200....its like a new version or something. I hope everything goes well guys. I will post pics and videos if anyone wants

Sweet! however i'm not too sure about a Frio fitting in the 1200 it's 8.4" inches wide.
I would only open one and try it in both builds first and see if it fits with the side panels on.
If it fits it will just fit/tight with little room to spare.
I'm just going by my 902 8.6" wide with a 160mm tall cooler and fans fitted.
The cooling pipe knobs extend out from top of cooler past the fan tops.
Could you keep this thread open and post back if the Frio fits in the 1200.
Would be good to know.
Thanks and good luck with your builds:)

Yeah, I will keep this open. Our build Consists of Corsair 650, 2x2 corsair xmps3 4GB ram, MSI twin frozr 460 GPU, asus pro 890GX motherboard, Phenom II x4 955 Cpu, Thermaltake Frio heatsink, windows 7 64 bit OEM, 7200 Rpm Spinpoint F3 Hard drive, 2 Asus DVD/CD burners. We wanted to stay under 900 and 1000 for both our builds for good gaming on our 23 inch LG LED 1920x1200 and 1920x1080 monitors for WOW, Borderlands and other random games. Also bought Tuniq Tx-4 thermal paste

We could have spent much more on a sandy bridge setup and other items such as a 560 or 570 Gpu but if we are not satisfied then I will sell my rig this summer and build a new one. We make alot of money so its not really a big deal to us or atleast myself. I will make a youtube video of short unboxings of ALL of the items and a video of the finished product if anyone is interested. My youtube channel is McPhersons4Life. I dont have much on there...lol
