New CPU cooler - Do i have enough space?

Hi guys.

I'm still using the stock cooler on my i5-2500k cpu.
I've noticed it's getting pretty hot and noisy when doing intensive work and in some CPU-heavy games. So i'm thinking about getting a new fan.

Now, what i was wondering is simply if it will fit.

My current setup:

- Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced
- Asus p8z68-v Pro
- Intel i5 2500k

I was looking at Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo, price is good, and all i could find was great reviews.

So do i just have to buy it and see if it'll fit or not?
Or does anyone know if it will?

Cheers :)
