Will Tuniq Tower fit in this case?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I recently purchased a Zalman 9500 along with a bunch of new parts from Newegg. Now I realize how stupid I am for not doing more research on heatsinks and I now want the Tuniq Tower. I bought an e6600 with a P5W-DH delux and I'm going to OC it to ~3.2 so I'll need the best cooling possible.

The problem is that I also purchased a Thermaltake Tsunami Dream (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133132 to be exact) and I really need to know if it will fit and how good is the combo?

One more thing, will the stock fan in the Tuniq suffice or should I buy a better 120mm fan for it.

Any info and recommendations would be great, thanks!

It's a 8.3" wide and you'll need an 8" wide case for a Tuniq Tower 120. So, it'll fit fine, and the best thing is that the Tuniq Tower 120's fan is located in the inside of the HS, so there won't be a problem with the air-flow.

BTW, my Tuniq Tower 120 fits in this CoolerMaster case.

The stock fan in the TT120 is more than enough, I bought some Silverstone but I couldn't take the noise that the thing made so I notched it down a bit, actually to the same 2k-rpm that the TT120 fan spins at (for max) and it's just the same results in temps. Don't bother changing the stock fan.

Thanks for the reply. I was looking at comparisons and found that the stock fan was actually pretty good but I heard many people liked the fan you're talking about a lot, so I wasnt 100% sure.

I can assure you it will fit. Lol I have the exact same case and I of course have the Tuniq Tower 120.

Nice, how do you like the combo?

Well I cannot speak for temp.'s right now because I seated the heatsink wrong with too much AS5. Someone told me I also had the heatsink the wrong way. (I did it how the manual said to do it)

I am hoping to go out and get some alcohol tomorrow so I can reseat my heatsink.
