It's already been mentioned, but it's worth mentioning again that you can always just dremel off 1/8 - 1/4" of the offending fin. I doubt that would have much of an effect on temps, and is something that a lot of folks need to do in order to make heatsinks fit properly.

Here's a picture that I found of someone else's dealings with this shit.

Wilson, I have tried to make it work there is no way it will fit properly and there is no way I am going to start cutting this case. I talked with my friend at NCIX who said he will take it back so I will be looking into another HS I am thinking this HS.

I won't buy another HS sink unless I know it will fit. Truthfully I didn't think for one second I would have any issues with installing any heat sink into this huge case.

I am sooo Pissed!
