    i've got an amd 1100t, and well the stock fan is just too noisy and i wanna replace it. Its either the coolermaster v8, which is about $65 on mwave.com.au or the Coolermaster Hyper Evo 212, which is only $35 on mwave. Now my problem is, im not sure at all if any of the cpus i mentioned above could fit in my case. I've just gotta basic generic case, that is 19.5cm in width. I would much rather the V8, but it seems too big.

    I don't think there is any certain way for anyone to answer that without providing more information about your case. Knowing the width doesn't tell anyone the standoff height or necessarily how the side panels fit on the case.

    If you can't provide any additional information on the case (via link or whatever), try and provide your motherboard model and be prepared to give other measurements.

    i guess all i can think of is, that its not one of those really small ones but just those typical normal sized ones. Hmm i will go try find a similar one on the internet.
    EDIT: sorry for double post, the Cooler master Elite 335U seems pretty similar to what i've got. My case also has that funnel on one of the side panels like the Cooler master 335u has.

    Very likely that the funnel will have to go...it's irrelevant anyway given the way the Hyper 212+ moves air.

    Provide motherboard yet.

    EDIT: yeah thats no problem either, the funnel can go.

    Well that all aside..I would personally go the 212-evo.V8 looks cooler i reckon but the 212-evo is a better heatsync.

    the hyper 212 evo seems like my best choice atm, since its cheaper and smaller then the V8. Plus, people seem to recommend it for gamers. I just want a decent cpu cooling fan, thats really quiet and does its job.
    EDIT: and obviously will fit in my case. If the v8 will fit then i really wouldn't mind getting it.

    Well the 212-evo is very quiet and does a great job due to the 4 contact pipes.I would definitly suggest the 212, for its price it is an exceptional cooler.

    Cheers :toast:

    The Cooler Master Hyper 212+ is supposed to have a more quiet fan than the EVO but the EVO fan has higher air flow.

    Either way both are still noticeable.

    Get the Hyper 212+. It is cheaper and the EVO is only a few degrees better. The 212+ can be bought for $22 at Amazon. The Hyper 212+ is just about silent inside a case BTW.

    Mr

    If your case is only 195mm width, it is extremely unlikely that a Hyper 212 Evo will fit. It generally requires a case width of at least 205mm. But, then again, that depends on how much clearance there is behind the Motherboard tray etc. Many current cases now have around 20mm clearance for cable management in this left side area. If yours is less than 20mm or considerably less and the standoffs are very short, you may have a glimmer of hope. There are only two ways to be absolutely sure: Either remove the CPU cooler and measure to the outside panel - you require 160mm minimum. Or, establish the make/model of your case and the manufacturer may have the maximum cooler height listed on their website under "Specifications"

    If your case is mid tower like you explained above, The 212 EVO will fit no problem.

    No way of know because you don't know what your case is. But they will fit a standard mid tower case. If not then just leave your side off. Problem solved

    Ive seen the 212+ on sale a couple of times for $19.99. The difference in the 212 EVO is the fan and contact area pipes are closer together

    No on the V8, yes on the 212+ EVO

    If you want a better cooler than stock, don't want to run into fit problems, and want something easy to install (i.e. don't want to remove motherboard from case) then try the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7
    Link:
    ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 92mm Fluid Dyna...

    Installs with 2 screws and you don't have to remove the motherboard :toast:

    Better than stock and much quieter but not as good as the CM 212+/Evo

    There's also the Hyper TX3 which is the 212+ little brother at 90mm instead of 120mm and installs with push pins

    If it's your "typical" computer case, the 212 should fit.
