I also have for my motherboard a Asus A8N deluxe mother board with a X2 4400 cpu OEM. Now my question is im planning to buy the Zalman CPU cooler like this

Now im wondering if the CPU cooler will fit in my case with no problems?

Thanks

I checked the dimentions on your case compared to mine and they are really close. I have a boat of a cooler and it fits just fine with a fan on the inside window.


edit: actually they are the same size

I have the Zalman 9500, my case has a similar depth to the one you have indicated and I don't see why it shouldn't fit. It's really not that huge. Just looks and acts like it.

If you are really concerned, wait until your case arrives and then measure the depth available. There is a guide on the Zalman website that indicates the clearances required.

CPU cooler more than case...lol

yeah it'll fit fine, they wouldn't make it if it didnt! Although I'd take a different cooler, like a scythe infinity. Cheaper/better looking/better performance!
