The heat-sink that ships with the i7 980x is just a little too tall for the box we desire to place it in. . . Are there any heat-sinks that are a little wider instead of taller to offer the same cooling capabilities. Are there any other heat-sink options for the i7-980x??
What case do you have? Because its only 124mm tall which is smaller then a Arctic Cooling Freezer 7.
You will unlikely find a vertical cooling type heatsink and may be limited to a horizontal cooler.
Noctua NH-C12P SE14 114mm tall (with fan)
Thermaltake ISGC-400 101mm tall (with fan)
