Hello, looking to buy the FX-8350 and was hoping to buy a heat sync for it. I am looking at this: (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ). Just wondering if it will fit in my case.

My current build is:
GPU: HIS Radeon HD 7850 2gb GDDR5 (looking to upgrade to the HD 7950), (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)

Mobo: ASRock 970 Extreme3, (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)
PSU: Thermaltake 675W, (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)
CPU: AMD Fx-4170 4-Core-4.2Ghz-12.0MB Cache-stock heatsink,
RAM: G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600,
Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The case has a width of 225mm and the cooler needs 160mm of clearance from socket to case side, so should be ok.

itll be tight but it should work.
the case is 225mm wide the heatsink is 159mm tall. the raidmax page says there is 25mm behind the mobo for cablemgmt so that leaves 200mm for the mobo area

If it fits, it will be very, very close

To compare:
My Antec One has an overall width of 241mm.
The Hyper 212 Plus at 160mm (same size as the EVO) has about 3mm clearance.

Your RaidMax has a case width of 225mm. 16mm smaller.

Do you have a recommendation for a heat sync?

The Hyper 212 Plus fits in my Corsair 300R, which is 210 mm wide.
