More about will cooler case
  1. Just head onto the manufacturers website there you will find all the necessary dimensions of the cooler and you can calculate it from there.
  2. I doubt it that cooler is 167mm tall.
    Your case is 7.8" wide.
    Which is tall btw compared to the competition.
    Most HSF are 160mm tall or slightly less with a few exceptions.
    You'd need a case 9+" wide for that cooler.
    A CM 212+/EVO,Zalman Performa,Gelid Tranquillo/GX-7 are good quality coolers and under 160mm = fit no problem.

    If you like the CM SS 384-BiT suggested it's a good deal and should fit your cooler it's 8.6" W and has 3 fans.

    The 912 has 2 fans.
    The BitFenix only one.
    Something definitely worth considering.
  5. +1^ HAf 912 that should work great that is a generally designed thicker lower case that should work for you.

    the thing is the price is already WAY over £50 and this is still not including delivery which is about a extra £10, and im on a really tight budget here. i wouldnt mind getting a £60 case but that is the absolutly max i can get and this is including delivery charge, is there anywhere where you ca get these cases and still get free delivery?
  7. Hey Mega sorry man i cannot really advise there as i live in South Africa. Where are you based? London? Best thing to do would be to search on online store wthin your area.
