    Hello all! I have the CM Storm Sniper case. I'm cooling my QX9650 with a CNPS9300AT, and wanted to upgrade to the 9900Max. Trouble is, I cant actually measure the dimensions inside with the cover closed (where the side fan is). So, I'm wondering if anyone has any experience to know if the big 9900Max will fit in the sniper case? Thanks!

    Umm... did you measure from your motherboard to the chassis frame of your case and then measure the thickness of your side fan, and subtract the side fan thickness from the first measurement?
    If you do that, and you have a bit of room, then it fits...

    @Inceptor: How do you like that Seasonic? How long have you had it? I ask because I put one in my WHS I built about a year ago, and it's been rock-solid on voltages and cool the whole time. I'm hoping to get several more years out of it.

    I've had it four months, and it has been great. Rock solid.
    No problems whatsoever.
