I'm about to build a new PC with the K380 case, but I'm not sure if the cooler I want will fit. If it doesn't, which cooler should I use instead?

CPU cooler height: 155mm / 6.1 inch < Allowed

159 mm < EVO

Sorry but it won't fit.

Even though it's only a 4mm difference?

That's okay, so what other cooler should I get? Preferably between £25-£40 ($40-$65)

Interestingly, case manufacturer listed CPU clearance is not always valid. I think they are usually very conservative.

The Antec One lists a max CPU cooler height of 155mm.

The Hyper 212 PLUS at 159mm fits with ~3mm to spare, disregarding the bulge on the side panel.


However, I'd go with what they say, unless you see actual installations of the exact parts that show otherwise.
