Just built my new rig e6600 (p5b-e) with the scythe infinity and the darn Heatsink is too big for my case it sticks out over 1/2 inch and I cant fit my windowed side door back on my case, Thermaltake Lanfire

So.. im looking for a new case that will have enough room to fit this thing and fit the side! ... any good suggestions?

thanks!

Here is my suggestion: Dont use your side panel :)
Bad suggestion.

I use that heatsink with the Antec P180. It fits fine. You have to remove the video card cooling duct but I think most people remove it anyways...

its not a bad suggestion, its the cheapest alternative :) If you dont have the money NOW to buy another case, thats what I would do

When my case is open, it leads me to stick my hands in there and adjust/play/tweak/change things and then I find myself fixing problems rather than playing games :)

Cut a hole in your side panel that allows the heatsink to stick out. That way you get to use the side panel and you get to use the Infinity without a new case.
