Question  Question by sam

Will this fit in a Bitfenix Raider and will it word with a gigabyte 970-ud3 mobo w/ Phenom 960 (Am3+)

Answer by stewartz on Sunday, May 26, 2013
Whilst I cannot guarantee full compatibility, the cooler will fit the board & cpu and as long as you have 167mm or more clearance from CPU to the side panel then it will also fit the case.

 Worth it by Henry

Question  Fractal Arc Mini by Addy


I'm considering buying a MATX overclocked bundle which includes this cooler.
Height quoted is 167mm.
Would this cooler fit the Fractal Arc Mini? It fits in the Fractal R3 which has the same 165mm clearance according to the Fractal website.
