Hi Team,


I have a Antec Nine Hundred case,

a x79 sabertooth Asus


and a i7-4820k processor,

I can't determine what is a correct fit for my case/mobo without actually buying it (trial and error)

What do you guys recommend?

It does not matter if its liquid cooling or heatsink/fan

price is a factor but if its highly recommended ill pay the price.


Thank you!

Not too expensive, and has a good rating, though you need to double check the measurements on it, but I think it will fit inside the 900 case.

Probably best if you buy the board, memory, CPU and assemble in case.

Then measure what clearance you have inside the case.

From various comments on the Interwebby filling the board with high profile memory can obstruct cooling system.  The Thermal Armor can also hinder as well.  You need to take those in mind when you start looking for a cooling system.  But your measurements should help here.

Most manufacturers of cooling systems will supply measurements for their units.  If it isn't on their website then email them and they should supply.

I'd then start looking for cooling systems using a list such as http://www.frostytech.com/top5heatsinks.cfm or http://www.techspot.com/review/707-best-cpu-coolers/ or http://www.techradar.com/news/computing-components/processors/best-cpu-cooler-12-top-coolers-reviewed-and-rated-956968 as a guideline.
