Hi, everyone,

I currently have the following in an Antec Sonata III;

Intel C2D
ASUS P5Q Pro
Arctic Cooler Heatsink
EVGA Geforce GTX 560
Corsair DD2 RAM
Antec Earthware 500


I am thinking of upgrading to the following within the same case:

Intel Core i5 3570K
Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus Direct Touch
ASUS P8Z68-V Pro GEN3 Z68 LGA1155
OCZ ModXStream Pro 700w ATX 20/24PIN
G.SKILL Ripjaws X F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL 8GB
EVGA Geforce GTX 560

My question is, will this new gear comfortably fit in the Antec Sonata III?

Thanks!
DW

Yes it should just fine since the case is 8.1" wide should be enough space for the cooler!

I would really recommend buying an other case. The unique fan spot won't be good for an Ivy Bridge CPU and is generally not great. I changed from a Sonata III to a Corsair Carbide 400R and under load my new case is way more silent, everything is cooler, there's way more space and better cable management.

Hi, Nico?

Thanks for the advice. I decided to change to the Antec 302. It seems wider than both, though I do admit, they do seem like nice cases.

Cheers,
DW
