first measure the space you have so you don't get one that doesnt fit

The Aftic7Freezer Pro is smaller than the Tuniq and works almost as well. You can always experiment with water cooling.

Agreed with QuaziBee. The AF7 Pro should fit in any mid tower case.

...and mgcook, has a good price for it. $20 shipped, correct?

mgcook still hasn't sold his Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro. Well yes, the AF7 should fit into the case because it's somewhat small...

Here's a Comparison thread made by mgcook. You'll see the difference between the AF7 and the TT120.

There shouldn't be a problem. The height of the AF7 Pro is like 4-5 inches, or 10-12cm.
