I'm thinking about building a new desktop using a Cooler Master Micro ATX case (model ATC-620C-BX1) and don't know which CPU fan to use.  Most I've seen seem to be to big to fit in a slim line case.  It is only 5.5" high.

I've tried to get information from Cooler Master, but haven't heard back from them.  Can anyone recommend a good fan?

If you specify the cpu, that would be good.  Have you considered http://www.thermaltake.com/

Yep that would help :)  It's an Athlon XP 2500+ Barton core.  I've built a few mini towers and I've used Thermaltake and Vantec and it seems like they are too big for a slime line case.  Is it just my imagination?

I've looked on the site and saw solutions for 1U and 2U servers, so they must have slim versions, too.

I saw that.  No mention of slim line desktop solutions though.  I was hoping this would be a quick and easy answer for someone here.  No worries!

Fans for servers will work for desktops - it's the cpu that's important.  From the link I posted: http://www.thermaltake.com/coolers/rackmount/menuk7.htm

That's what I was looking for.  Don't know why I can't find that on the Thermaltake site.

I thought my last post did just that?  Was there a problem with them?

Yes, and my four links led to four different heatsinks for different CPUs, which were all practically found on Callandor's website.
