Hello,

I am looking to install a cooler master hyper 212 evo on the 6700k cpu for my new computer and case I'm planning to use is InWin 303. The case has a maximum heatsink height of 160mm and the 212 evo is 159mm in height. Is there going to be any problem with that tiny amount of clearance?

If you MB happens to be a thick one, or the mounting holes have thicker reinforcing, 1mm is a pretty tight tolerence.

The 212X (120 x 79 x 158 mm / 4.7 x 3.1 x 6.2 inch) may be a better choice, > http://www.coolermas...ler/hyper-212x/

Thank you for this! Though at the end I decided to go with liquid cooling for the cpu, but thank you anyway!
