The heat sink I would like to put in my case is a Noctua NH-U12P SE1366 here is a link.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608007
The Heigth of this heatsink is 6.23 inches.. I wonder if anyone else out there has use thse two products. Here is my monster and I need to keep her cool.





This case has a side fan that is pretty large... 230mm Fan and im guestimating this at 1 inch deep.

Why aren't you running on 64 bit yet??

oh and yea, if i can fit my Xigmatek S1283 in a Centurion 590 then you should be able to put that in there.. but, your going to have the one fan on the heat sink really close to the fan mounted to the back of the case, unless u have both fans suckin in air then it should be fine. pretty high priced heat sink.... did u look into the Xigmatek S1283??
 
If your pc case is 8 to 8.5 inches wide you'll probably be okay.

I've got the CoolerMaster HAF 932 with a large tower style cpu heatsink and a large 230mm fan on the side panel. There is plenty of room left over but that's because the case is 9 inches wide.

Thanks for the quick replies. I am still learning about OC'in and keeping my cpu cool. So far I like this the best. There is also liquid cool... but not sure what is nice yet. I do like thick hoses if I was going liquid.. any sugguestions? price limit is no more then 200.


thanks.
