Windows 7: ARCTIC F Pro PWM question [Help]

ARCTIC F Pro PWM question [Help]

Hello chaps Oops and ladies,

... Um this is probably going to sound like a really dumb question to ask, I just purchased a new chassis and I never like the fans than come with the chassis because they are always... Can I say crap? Well I ordered 6 Arctic Cooling fans, for my chassis mainly because I have used various fans over the years and Arctic Cooling are awesome, fast and quiet. the fans I have ordered a F12 120mm and I am a little worried that the exhaust fans might be a little on the large side.

I have ordered 2 ARCTIC F Pro PWM exhaust fans and 4 ARCTIC F TC one exhaust fan for the rear and top of the chassis, and because they are PWM these will be connected to the motherboard and to the CPU fan as well which is also an Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro 7.

I looked on YouTube for the ARCTIC F Pro PWM and it's massive, I didn't realise the fans was so big and it might overhang onto my M/B slightly. Oh yeah the chassis is a Thermaltake VH6000BWS Armour+ I think I might just get away with this because there is a heatsink on the motherboard right near the rear fan and this might be in the way. The M/B is an ASUS Rampage Extreme if you look at the heatsink to the left of the CPU that is near the rear panel that might get in the way...?

Has anybody else go this fan with this M/B and will it fit, I purchased with blinkers on.

Thanks in advance

Problem solved, I remembered that there are three thermal heatsinks and I am using the larger of the two and never used the smaller one. So problem solved. You see it's always best to keep all your boxes with bits left over because you never know when that day might come as with me when you need a part which you didn't use.
