  1. Oh yeah stupid question I think haven't a clue but will this fit in my Comos 1000 case? My friend gave me this case last year and it is rather lager but idk if it fits modern stuff well as it is from 2007.
  2. Hyper 212 Evo will cool down that chip nicely and should fit well, only thing look out for is the bracing bar across the top.

    Evo dimension H-120mm x W-80mm x D-159mm
    Cosmo dimensions H-598mm x W-266mm x D-628 mm
  3. It will fit in the Cosmos 1000 with no problem.

    The Hyper 212 EVO is a pretty good cooler but it's not nearly as good as your Corsair H80.You may feel a bit dissapointed by its performance.In my opinion, if you're serious about overclocking you should get a Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer instead.
    It's as good as your H80.
  5. Yeah but that is out of my budget at the moment M8. anyways thanks for the tips guys. :sol:
