I was considering Silverstone Grandia GD-05B http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Concerned that CPU cooler won't fit. I have a stock Dell cooler on Q9400.

I wen to http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=241&area=... where it says:

Limitation of CPU cooler 70mm (remove ODD if you want install up to 120mm)

Obviously I will not remove optical drive--that is 50% of the reason for this case for me.

Does anyone know if 70mm refers the height of the CPU cooler?

"Does anyone know if 70mm refers the height of the CPU cooler?"

Yes, it does. What else could it refer to?

Where would you measure from? If I measure from the surface of the motherboard to the top of the fan, it's 75 mm.
