FT02 cooler size

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello. I wasn't sure whether to post this in the case forums or the air cooling forums, so I just picked one.

I'm wondering how big a cooler will fit in the Silverstone FT02. Specifically, I'm wondering if a Thermalright Archon will fit inside it. I know the user manual say that the case will fit a 165mm tall cooler, and that the Archon is 170mm tall, but I would think that the manual would have at least a small margin for error. Also, although I know this is hardly a legitimate source, one extremely shoddily translated Chinese website I saw seemed to imply that the cooler would fit.

Any thoughts and advice are welcome!

Are you sure about the 140mm part? Thermalrights's website says that the Archon is 170mm tall. How much clearance does your NH-D14 have? Because, if it has 10mm or more clearance, the Archon, which is 10mm taller, ought to fit.
