The specs can give you an idea of depth to determine if it will fit your case in terms of the width of the case. But any other dimension it really comes down to your mb. Tbh, if you're going to consider a large cooler like the SA/SA-sbe/NhD-14/Phanteks/Assassin, you should start with a large case (whether medium or full tower) with ample spacing. If you plan to shove this into a small case, then consider something slightly smaller. I'm sure this last bit of advise is too late, but something to keep in mind cheers.gif.

Ya, I was asking because of the height that the cpu socket adds to a cooler when installed. I should've mentioned it was 1155. There can't be much variance in 1155 socket heights.
All other dimensions will fit just fine. It's really just the height factor.

It's all good though. The SA-Extreme probably would've just about made it with the fans at mid+rear, but the K2 will go without question.
This whole thing started with someone saying that their case specs stated 163mm cooler clearance, yet they got a Phanteks in there without problems.
I made a few mobo to cooler/fan height measurements and compared them to ones I got from Phanteks owners and concluded that it would be +/-1-2mm from the side panel... Not good.

The SA-Extreme was my second choice and looked like it'd have a little more space to play with, but still close. Hence my original question. smile.gif

Cheers mate smile.gif

EDIT: I hope nobody was offended by me giving the SA '2nd choice' status tongue.gif If it's any consolation, I'll be using at least three of the awesome TY-141's in the case lol thumb.gif

There shouldn't be any difference in terms of cpu height among the same socket family. The op gives you some info on what to expect and you can surely find the socket + mb height on the web. I understood you're were looking for height not the depth (when installed in a traditional atx setup (ie, from top to bottom of the mb):

I was looking for height/depth as in mobo to side panel.
I do appreciate the assistance, but the situation has been resolved by ordering something that definitely fits with no issues biggrin.gif

Sounds good. I'm curious to see how the SB-E performs after being lapped. thumb.gif

Thanks for all the help guys. Sadly, I parted ways with my SA. Nothing against its awesome performance but I needed some space for my top gpu.

I was able to keep one of the Ty-140s, so I'll be using that with my incoming closed loop system smile.gif

look forward to seeing how the SA SB-E compares to SA
post #2299 of 3858
Love my new sb-e! :-)
Wish they stocked these in Australia, the $50 shipping from USA made it hard to chose over a D14 but as a happy and long time hr-01+ owner i knew this baby wouldn't let me down either.

MB: GA-890FXA-UD5 rev 2.1
Case: Fractal Design R2 *Edit - my apologies, case is actually the R3.

SAM_0439.jpg

Still needs some work on fans etc. Tried removing the rear but temps increased in my case. Will nibble the mesh out soon enough. Extra thermalright fan is in the top of case for now.

Compared to my hr-01+ with push/pull noctua P fans, which is nearing 3 years of use, temps are 10-15c cooler on stock and oc, idle and load temps. Very very happy with that.

I'm considering an LGA2011 upgrade over the next few weeks and was wondering if anyone using a 2011 board and able to fit this cooler can chime in which board they are using. Most of the cheaper boards just wont fit it and with my cards its looking like a asus sabertooth will probably be the best option but its just so much for a board!

Anyways, help appreciated :-)

@icekreme1002,
Assume you have the TY-150 fan mounted. How much clearance to your side cover mate?
