supposedly the crossflow fan doesnt fit with todays video cards, theyre too long and they block the area that the crossflow fan mounts at

I'm thinking it might be worth going with a nearly-as-good cpu hsf that is a bit shorter than the tuniq to let the 4th fan in?

Tuniq Tower 120 = 153.5mm tall
ZALMAN CNPS9700 = 143mm tall
ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm = 126.5mm
I see about 1/2 an inch open to the plastic rim. I would say you'd need another 1/2 inch to fit it in. So find something around 1/2 an inch shorter then the tuniq.

ok, so 1/2" is about 12.7mm, tuniq being 153.5, I guess I need one 140.8mm or less. I need to find what the best HSF under that is. Looks lik the zalman is already out, gah. I just think that an extra 120mm fan blowing right on the HSF has to help out a bunch.

Thanks for the measurements!
