  1. The Cooler Master Hyper Evo 212 won't fit, it needs 159 mm :(
  2. The Hyper 212 Evo should fit, it's a really strong cooler for the price. You could go for liquid cooling like a refurbished Corsair H60 for about the same price, too.
  3. The A30 won't fit either, it needs 162 mm...
  4. Best answer
    The ARCTIC Freezer Xtreme Rev. 2 will fit, it's 130 x 100 x 131 mm. Go for it.
  5. I thought it was 149 for some reason. The Arctic Freezer will work.
  6. cool - I think the Arctic Cooling Freezer Xtreme Rev.2 will be ok though it has a lower tdp then the Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 - thanks much appreciated guys :)
  7. Hyper 212 evo will fit too. It needs 158 mm and if it needs 159 that 1 mm will nog matter..
