I am in the process of building a new computer and i am looking at this case. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... The problem with it is if the cpu cooler is bigger than 150mm the door on the side wont shut. So how big is the standard CPU cooler that comes with the I7 4770k processor?

The stock CPU cooler is 50-60mm thick, nowhere close to being a problem - Intel has been reusing practically the same design since the Core2Duo on LGA775, the main differences with newer iterations being the copper core and slightly different mounting hole spacing. If you have seen any of Intel's stock coolers for LGA775/1156/1155/1150 in the past 5-6 years, you have practically seen all of them.
