Default CPU Fan

I want to put a Quad Q6600 G0 Stepping CPU into an Antec 900 case. I have considered several CPU fans but would welcome some advice.

1 Scythe Infinity - Would it fit? The website said to check it would fit before buying but I have not got the case yet.

2 Coolermaster MARS RR-CCX-W9U1-GP - Just looks great.

3 Zalman CNPS 9700 LED

A lot of people here go with the Tunique tower.. I think it is one of the best air coolers out.

The tuniq is real nice, the 9700 is quite big though, not sure if it's bigger than the tuniq. The 9500 will definitely fit. The best air cooler these days is the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme. But it's quite expensive and comes with no fan.

I use the cnps9500, it isn't huge or heavy and gets the job done.

The antec 900 houses my TRUE-120 just fine and its probably the biggest air cooler on the market atm. Also it doesnt wield a knife and taunt you "i cut joo mang, i cut joo so good you no wish i cut joo"

Quick question about the Tuniq Tower in the Antec 900... How much clearance is there between the heatsink and the side panel? I'm looking at the similar P180 and it's a tiny bit smaller than the 900...

The tuniq fits in the 900, not sure how much clearance though, you shouldn't have a problem in the p180.
