    Highly doubt it will fit, it may but I doubt it due to the size.

    If it says it on their website then yes it must be able to otherwise it is false advertising, just check it does not say with a 200cfm case fan or something along those lines.

    I agree with yewen. The ninja is a big cooler, and some towers cant accomodate it, so I doubt the HTPC will be able to.

    The LC18 looks quite high for a htpc, shame if it won't fit. I'll have to drop my
    Zalman CNPS7000B into otherwise.
    Just looked at the hight of the LC18 and it's 170mm high , how high is the ninja ?

    It probably wouldn't. The scythe is 150mm high and the case is 170mm. Thats not including the thinkness of the case, mobo stand offs and the mobo. It might do with a VERY tight fit.

    For example it only just fits in my CM centurion 530. Fits but i cant have the side 80mm fan on (an amber) which are like 20mm and the case is 235mm wide.

    So it wont fit, lol. Is a very good cooler though :p

    Still don't think it will, remember to factor in the motherboard tray aswell, that will add another 0.5cm/1cm to your numbers.

    Good luck. I'll be hoping to do something similar in a lian li v300 (when i get my mits on one). Can see the PSU being a problem for me in that one tho.

    It's a great cooler. Keeps my 3700 at 20/30 in a DFI and around 30 all the time in my asus.

    Put a 120mm amber and 5 or 7v it and it's silent and performs better than most other sinks on the market! A 12v fan makes it THE best!
