    Thumbs down ZALMAN CNPS7700Cu Doesn't Fit :( :( :(

    since the ZALMAN CNPS7700Cu needed 25mm from top of CPU bracket to bottom of PSU (On a Soket 478 setup) and i only have 10mm but the PSU hangs 17mm below the top of the case...i wish i could move the PSU up to the top gaining 17mm but it cant be done (easily that is) so i decided to go with the ZALMAN CNPS7000Cu instead but before i buy it...is there a big difference between the 7700 and the 7000? check my sig if u need details on system i will be applying it to

    You could always cut back the fins on the 7700 to give you the clearance.

    Ive been thinking about that since the 2 gaps are up and down because of my vertical setup so i wouldnt even have to cut too much off and i'll still have more surface area than a 7000 so that might not be a bad idea at all lets just hope that the fan doesnt hit either
