Found a good deal for the ThermalRight IFX-14 Inferno and wondering if it will fit inside my Antec 900 Ultimate Gamer case.

Intel Core 2 Duo 8400 Currently OCed to 3.4GHZ on stock cooling, would like to get it up in the 4ghz+ range

Should..... The amount you need to cut off the fan or heatsink would be a very very small amount. And the side fan really helps airflow. So get a side fan later if ya want.

What you should do is measure the top of the CPU chip to the edge of the case. Then go to the Thermalright web page and look up the dimentions for that cooler.

You'd have your own answer then, and be sure.

Ah thank you very much

Also from your picture its seems that you had to make the fans face downwards... were you unable to rotate the heatsink without it covering RAM slots?
