The setup is inside an old full-tower case which has a fan on the side.
I was looking at the Cooler Master Hyper 212+ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... but i'm worried about dimensions especially with the side fan which takes up a bit of the depth. I mean I could take the fan off for extra space but not sure..... And no I dont know what kind of case it is, I suppose I could look for a marking or number, but the case itself is several years old now.
Any way, I was just looking for a "better than stock" air CPU cooler, because while I don't OC my Phenom II runs a bit too warm for comfort on CPU intensive games.
You think so? I was thinking of maybe doing that....
edit: Measured again, if I took off the fan unit I would have enough room.
Ok then buy the 212+ and remove your fan, if you want you can buy a fan grill and put the fan outside though that would be dumb, so get the 212+, it's $29 only. There still is a chance that the fan will fit but the fan doesn't make much of a difference anyways
