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. | Report abuse 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 | Report abuse wr6133 CPUs Authority October 25, 2012 11:22:14 AM A bit offtopic to your measurement question but that motherboard is a terrible rip off. You are paying for the sabretooth name and that "thermal armour" is possibly even counterproductive.
