Space constraints

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm getting a Lian-Li v300b case, and I am planning on getting a TRUE, but I'm worried about whether it will fit, so just as a precaution, what are some other heatsinks in the same range as the TRUE, but that are a little smaller?

Don't go with a smaller heatsink just as a precaution, you will hate yourself later. If it has a 120mm back fan, I'm 99% sure it will fit.

Edit: What is the size of the fan in back? If it is anything under 120mm it's hopeless. I couldn't find any good review of it...

They're only 80 mm, but I remember reading somewhere that 120mm can fit. can't remember where I read that though.

From looking on the inside of the case, it appears that it would clear as the 80mm fans don't appear to be too tall within the case
