But, it looks as though the tuniq would fit. One thing you have to think about is the weight of the heatsink, both the 9700 and the tuniq weigh over 700 grams (754 for zalman and 798 w/o fan). That puts a lot of stress on your mobo, so if you are going to carry this pc to lan parties, you have to be careful.
I'm not going to be taking my rig to lan parties or anything like that, I'm just going to replace my current AMD A64 X2 rig with a Intel C2D Rig. But I will place games that demand a lot of CPU/GPU power so I need my CPU to stay cool throughout. Anyway, thanks for all your help. But it looks like I need to wait until I get my P180 to get the Tuniq Tower since it won't fit in my Asus Vento. Not a problem, I can live with stock cooling... for a little while.
