Hmmmm, what is it you are looking for? A recommendation for a new Heatsink/fan combo?

Got one of these antec/aria shuttle type cases and there ain't a lot of room for a fan/heatsink, 85mm high would be pushing it, the original fan is screaming pretty loud!

I'll have to measure it, but a Swiftech MCX478 with a 92mm fan shouldn't be higher than 80mm.

Most of the people that i know uses Zalman CNPS 7xxx. It sure is short but is kinda wide so be sure that it will fit your mobo.

Its an intel d845grg board, there's not a lot of room in the case even with tidy wiring. Not sure the zalman would fit, pretty tight.

Coolermaster aquagate

Use this in one of my Antec Arias on a p4, otherwise stock HSF's work just fine...

Thanks for the replies, I'll do a bit of measuring before deciding, hopefully won't need the aquagate as its only a 2ghz :D


Mr T is your pwr supply noisy, kinda tinny sounding on your antec aria case?

Apologies Mr T, its a screeming h/drive, in a small case its difficult to pinpoint the noise, new h/drive tomorrow!
