Default Can a Cooler Master V8 fit a CM 690?

Tried Googling but can't find any answers.

Also, would you guys recommend the 690 for an i7 build? It would fit my budget better than a full tower, and I like smaller towers anyway. However, I'm just worried if it'll fit the GTX 200 cards well and future cards (like the 300 series).

I wouldn't recommend the V8 in general. But I think it will fit in the 690. Maybe someone else knows from personal experience.

Do you mind recommending something better that you know for sure will fit without any modding or removing the side fan? I'm having trouble finding one that is compatible with the i7, let alone finding one that also comes with the i7 compatible bracket.

edit: How's this? Newegg.com - XIGMATEK Dark Knight-S1283V 120mm Long Life Bearing CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks And do you know if it comes with the i7 compatible bracket?

The dark knight you selected is a great cooler, And yes it fits socket 1366 out of box, some of the other cooler need a special bracket which is just another product on newegg. Both coolers will fit in the coolermaster 690, but the dark knight is a better choice since the v8 is overpriced.

The only other cooler to take into consideration is this
Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120 mm Core-Contact Freezer CPU Cooler W&#47;TX-2 - CPU Fans & Heatsinks
Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-LGA1366 LGA 1366 Core I7 Retention Bracket - CPU Fans & Heatsinks
It is 10 more because you need the bracket but it is slightly better and comes with tx-2 thermal paste which is the best paste at the moment. If money is important just go with the Dark knight, you wont even notice a difference between the two.

Yes they will fit in the case but if the dark knight or Core-Contact is the same size as my vendetta 2 then he will lose the fan on the side for sure and he don't want that.

I had to take out the fan on my 690 when i installed my vendetta as its about 1/2 inch too long
