Hey could ye guys recommend me a good cooler that'll fit in my Vulcan case.
I ordered a Antec 920 but it turned out to not fit on my 1155 mobo (only has holes for 775, 1366 and 1156) so I'm returning that and I also would prefer something smaller as the case has already got really crowded and fitting the 920 or another cooler as such would be a right pain! Also I'm not planning on doing any overclocking for now so I could do with a smaller cooler.

So what would ye guys recommend for a good cooler that'll fit inside the case without much problem.

Cheers!

1155 matches the 1156 holes. You should be able to use the 1156 mounting bracket.

If you want a smaller cooler, and don't plan on overclocking, then the Noctua NH-U9B SE2 92mm is a nice little cooler. Intel also makes a nice little 90mm cooler too, Intel BXXTS100H.

Man, I got my hopes up after seeing all the nice pictures here. I'm so jealous of you guys as I myself have another cluster****. :/

Especially around the 5.25 bays. Oh god what a mess. And the back is like a spider web of wires, I don't know how to tidy it up they're so many.

I removed the cage at the bottom for the kuhler 920 and the wires are stretched out adding to the cluster****. I got an idea though fortunately, Fan>Case>Radiator>fan I'll try it out tomorrow morning see how much space that clears up.

All that and I still haven't put my two 560ies in. Maaan.

Finally managed to complete my PC build and I went ahead and tried fitting the Antec 920 again and somehow managed to make it work...just!!

It is fairly amazing how much you can squeeze in such a small case.

Check out some pics:




And the mess in the back:


Took me forever to clear the cable clutter and manage everything. Also took a long time to figure out the best way to set up the Antec cooler so that firstly it fits and secondly the pipes don't bump into and put pressure on the GPU or the RAM or any other components.

Still have a few niggles with the case. There is a buzzing/humming noise coming from the top area where the USB, headphone jacks and all are. If you plug in your headphones, you end up hearing the buzzing in your headphones which is quite annoying and so I've ended up using the audio from my monitor via the HDMI coming from the GPU. Also found out the eSATA port on the top doesn't work on my case... So this is what I'm not really happy about with the case. But its still a brilliant little case!!

The blue plastic caps for my kuhler 920 are slightly cracked. If they were ever to break, how can I replace them?

Now that's one beastly machine! It'll practically make two of mine. Very jealous.

Nice build, though. Hope you like the case as much as I do
