I have the original Fractal Design XL case and I'm thinking of buying a Noctua NH-U12P SE2 CPU cooler to fit to an old Foxconn 9657MA and equally old Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 to tide me over whilst saving for a new PC.
I'm wondering whether the Noctua will fit in my case ok. The height of the cooler is no problem and leaves ample room for the side panel. The cooler depth to the back of the case looks ok too. What concerns me is the CPU cooler width which looks like it will bring it very close indeed to the XL's top 180mm angled fan. Has anyone used this combination and/or knows if it will fit ok.
Any help would be much appreciated.
