If you go to the website for that case, you'll see this:
"CPU Heatsink Support 160mm"

The 212 EVO is listed at 159mm.
Maybe, maybe not. Who is being conservative or aggressive with their sizes?

I might have been a little too conservative about my size comparison that is a case I have no worked on. Sorry about that apparently i am slipping quite a bit.

Same problem i had with my Kraken x60 my CPU face was to far out so the bolts weren't long enough, so i customized it lol, took some longer bolts i had lying around and but the washers on the end (making sure they were all they were all grounded) and its works like a charm.

Within 1 mm it should fit, however be very careful when you install it.

It is a very close fit, therefore i would go with one of these options:
