Im not sure which fans would be thinner. I am using the ones that came with the case. But my bro needs a new HSF so I am going to give him mine for like 40 bucks and just get a ZAn 9500 from egg. Thanks guys.

If you can fit a Zalman 9700 in your case, I recommend it. I didn't buy the Tuniq, just because I liked the look of the Zalman more, but if performance is your thing, the Zalman will work for that too... it's just second to some of those other giant coolers like the Tuniq and Scythe.

EDIT: People asking if x-cooler will fit in your case: do your homework! if you're not sure, get a measurement of your case from your motherboard to your side panel, and compare it to the cooler dimensions. You may also want to make sure that if the cooler is long/wide, that it will clear all of your other components. i.e., if you have a really tall northbridge cooler, make sure it's not too close to the CPU cooler mounts.

Yea the problem was the side fans, the measurements through me off because I didn't calculate right. Thanks guys.
