Running out of options

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Tomorrow morning I will be ordering my CPU, Motherboard and my CPU Heat sink. I was originally going with the Corsair H50 but after weeks of review I decided to go with Air Cooling instead (mostly because they run cheaper then an expensive water cooling system)

Anyways my problem is this, I use a APEVIA X-Plorer ATX-Mid Tower case and my power supply is at the top and I also have 2 Corsair Vengeance (with huge heat sinks). Now I have been looking into both the ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX and COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus. According to many reviews and me actually trying to figure out the exact width of my case. I do not see either of the two fitting.

Are there any coolers that are similar in performance but smaller in dimension? I will be over clocking but I won't be going all the way to 4ghz maybe stay around 3.8ghz.

The width of the case is 7.75 which in mm is 196mm

Thanks in advance.

I'd honestly build a little WC setup yourself rather than buying pre-made... you might not save money right now but long term you have more options...

I have installed Hyper 212+'s in the Apevia X-Dreamer 2 and it fits just fine. Since the X-Plorer is the same chassis with different front bezel and trim it would have to fit in it as well.

The 212+ has 37mm of clearance from the top of the cpu to the bottom of the heatsink. Since the bottom of the ram slot is slightly below the top of the cpu ram under 39 or 40mm should fit under the heatsink. If you can mount it blowing front to back you should have even more room as only the fan would hang over any of the ram slots, and you can slide the fan up a bit and still have good cooling with it.

Since the ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX is slightly shorter I can't see why it wouldn't fit in the case either, but not sure about ram clearance on it.
