    Intel Core 2 Duo Heatsink height?

    Hi everybody... My aboslute first post so please be kind!

    Could anyone please tell me how high the retail HSF on a Core 2 Duo processor like the E4400, or E2160 is? I'm plannin on upgrading my ageing Athlon XP 2100 machine, but I'm keeping the case and power supply as the basis for a new system.

    The reason I ask is because my current case, a Lian Li PC50 mounts the power supply vertically, so it actually sits over the CPU. I've been using an Akasa AK825 HSF all this time, and the top of the f an grille touches the underneath of the power supply. The AK825 is 80mm high, so could anyone tell me if the HSF in the retail pack of Core 2 Duos has a height of 80mm or taller?

    Specifically the E2160 or E4400 as those are the two I on my new system's shortlist, but possibly most of the range could share the same HSF.

    Hope someone can help.

    Many thanks for your time in reading this!

    It's 70mm from the mobo to the top of the fan. It should fit fine and yeah most of the range use the same heatsink, the higher end chips have a faster fan, but the same design.
