Not trying to hijack your thread, but I have a related question and it seems dumb to make an entirely new thread on it.

Anyone know if the Antec Nine Hundred can hold the Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme and still have the optional side fan?

will fit in the Coolermaster Centurion case?

no, the TRUE is taller than the tuniq tower, and my tuniq won't fit with the side fan on.


to OP : im pretty sure it will. the tuniq is 154 mm tell and (barely) wont fit. the big typhoon is 122 mm tall. stanard 120mm fans are 120x120x25 mm. so it should fit. the tuniq, even without the side fan, will still way outperform the typhoon, though.

Will the Tuniq fit in a CM Stacker?
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Stacker 830 RC-830-SSN3-GP Silver Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail

It's listed as 9.8" wide... should be no problem right? If the 900 is 8.1"...
