  1. Should be able to with ease. Excellent choice by the way, they are really excellent CPU coolers. Also please remember to select the best solution so that others may learn from this thread. Thank you for your time.
  2. 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.

    Overall width of the case does not matter. Motherboard tray clearance, CPU face, and cable space all need to be subtracted from that 195mm width.
  5. 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.
  6. So does it fit or not?
  7. Within 1 mm it should fit, however be very careful when you install it.
  8. What do you mean?
