I am having trouble trying to find a good i7 CPU cooler that will fit comforably into a Thermaltake Armor+MX VH8000BWS ATX Mid Tower Case with a ASUS P6T Delux LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard (without cutting the case or removing any fans) Suggestions plese!!!
All of the lga 1366 fans are huge or either pretty big.
The ASUS Triton 81 92mm EBR CPU Cooler is about the smallest (quality) fan you can get besides a couple others that are complete trash like the dynatron and the Thermaltake CL-P0508 110mm CPU Cooler.
They are all big like I said, it should fit but you in the end will be the one determining as I do not want to get blamed if it fits but you end up having to move a case fan around etc..
I am not a big fan of the intel push pin setups on these cpu coolers. You can get a retention bracket like this below that will make the connection more secure and sturdier using a back plate and bolts.. It is out of stock but hopefully back in stock soon.. You can even use it on the stock intel fan if you wanted..
pretty much all the other fans on newegg are good that I didn't specify but they are huge. Thermalright makes one but can be found on different websites.
