Thanks More about : cpu heatsink fan question RickyT23 a b à CPUs October 25, 2012 10:41:09 AM From the linked sites: Heatsink Dimensions 94(L) x 131(W) x 152(H)mm Case Dimensions: 20.6" x 18.1" x 8.1" OK, so I've got to convert those inches to cm: 8.1 in = 20.6 cm So the answer is likely YES! It will fit. The fan is < 16cm, the case is >20cm. It's probably a safe bet that the fan will fit in the case. m 0 l Armada_18 October 25, 2012 11:16:28 AM did you take into consideration the motherboard/CPU also taking up probably about 1/4-1/2 an inch in the case as well as well with the fan? if i did my calculations correct, that's leaving 2 inches space m 0 l Can't find your answer ?

You are paying for the sabretooth name and that "thermal armour" is possibly even counterproductive.
