are there any smaller coolers u guys could reccomend? ive heard that these two barely fit in my case and i would prefer to not have such a close fit (they wont fit at all if i put in the 4th fan).

zerotherm BTF90, if you don't mind the design. I have been actively researching it and you won't obtain overclocking performance as with a Tuniq, but I'd say it would do the job, especially with good airflow in your case.

Cheeseking25,

I plan on going with your exact case, and I'll still be getting a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme or a Tuniq Tower. I've read that this case is big for a mid-tower case, so I think you'd be okay.

well i wont be doing any extreme overclocking and i was looking to get the side fan for extra cooling on the 8800GTX that will be there. I know the Tuniq tower or thermalright coolers wont fit with the side fan so im more interested in a zalman or the artic cooling 7 pro.

personally I've been researching an air/water hybrid... the kingwin gladiator. not many people recommend it here, but I'm going to get it and see how she performs. might do the research on it yourself
