Default Sunbeam Core Contact Freezer 4

It's after the fact since I have already ordered it but has anyone installed one of these coolers into a Antec 900? I got it to go with my Q9450 and it is only now, after the fact, that I start hoping it will fit

TIA

well the most recent product review on NCIX for this says:

who needs water cooling when you got antec 900 + Sunbeam core freezer and cpu boosted at least 15% at full load = 35c
So this guy got it to fit. There's no real reason why it wouldn't fit anyway. If you want to be sure the measurements are there, just take a quick look with a tape.

Yeah it should fit...though you won't have a lot of room left between it and the side panel.

Thanks guys,

I have never purchased a hsf having always used stock coolers. I made the purchase earlier today and it wasn't until I started a 12 hour shift at work that it occured to me "I wonder if it will fit...It should...but will it?" I am glad to know it should work.
