Corsair A70 will it fit?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am not really sure if this this Corsair A70 will fit in my case (Antec 300).

Is anybody using an Antec 300 with a Corsair A70 will it fit?

Thanks in advance to all posts.

It fits no problem. I have a A50 in a 300 and A70 in a 902

It should fit, BUT if you're using a fan on the side door you'll probably run into problems.

I need to use a 120x120x12mm slim fan on my door...you could always mount your door fan on the outside...

Any idea if the stock thermal compound is any good I was going to buy some Arctic Silver 5 if not.

The stock stuff is OK. My load temps are 75-80 at 4.7 Ghz, 1.43v in prime blend and ITB. Not sure if the AS5 would make much of a difference....what OC are you gunning for?

Honestly I dont think I'm going for anything big with my i7-950, would be my first OC, and I don't want to **** anything up so probably around 3.5-4.0GHz.

The AS5 is pretty much a one time investment, one tube lasts for so many installs... I would go for it personally, I don't know about the stock stuff but you can almost garuntee the AS5 is better.

And you know, what if you want to reseat at some point...

I don't know much about the 1366 processors, so I can't really comment on that at all...I'm fairly sure 3.5 is attainable with the A70...maybe 3.8ish?
