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 ?
