Default Coolit Domino A.L.C. with mid-tower case

Hello everyone!

This is my first post here at Hardware Canucks, and I love that I've found this site! Who knew so many of my fellow Canadians cared about computer hardware?! Anyways, I need some advice about the Coolit Domino A.L.C. My main question is whether anybody here knows whether it will fit in my NZXT. Apollo mid-tower case? It looks so darn close I want to just buy one and find out! My main concern is whether or not it will run into the side fan, but also whether or not it will squeeze into the fan port with that bit of plastic around the one side of the fan. With my luck nobody will have tried this combination, so any experience anyone has with fitting a Domino A.L.C. into a mid-tower case would be helpful. And please no "Domino sucks" posts... "Domino rocks" posts will be fine though! Thanks!

I took a long deep look at my Apollo last night, and I'm pretty sure because the general size of the the unit goes no bigger than a 120mm Fan , it should just squeeze in there without too much of a hassle.
Use the mounting screws , and not the rubber feet that come with it if you mount it up in there however.

Good luck,
ST

Alright thanks a lot for your help guys. Soultribunal I did notice as I was reading some threads that you had the same case as me, and I was hoping you would reply! So thanks, that's good advice. I'm hopeful as well that it should just squeeze in, and I'll definately be using the screws.. I don't trust those rubber things at all! I'll let you know how it goes and maybe post some pics when I get it. Might be a few weeks though, I'll probably be waiting for my birthday to get the Domino (March 14), then I'm going away for a week the next day.
