will a 212 evo fit in a mars midi case?

I have my stock cooler but im interested in buying an 212evo to keep my Fx-6350 a lot cooler with a load. Im just wondering whether the 212 evo cooler will fit in my CIT mars midi case.

  1. It is going to be close in a 188mm wide case but it fits in my Rosewill Challenger that is the same width.
  2. The outer width of the case isn't enough to determine whether a given cpu fan will fit. Normally, I'd say check the manufacturer site for maximum cpu cooler height, but I don't find a manufacturer site for CiT. The Rosewill Challenger has a rear 120mm fan mount, which usually means there is enough inside width for a 212 EVO, but the CiT Mars case from what I can find only has mounting for an 80mm or 92mm rear fan, so there's a good chance the 212 EVO won't fit.

    Would there be any other types of coolers you would suggest?

    I found some posts claiming that a 212 EVO will fit in a CiT Mars case, but none of them adequately explained how they knew, so I'm reluctant to believe them. See if either of these is available in your area, though:

  5. There is no space to spare in my Challenger case but this would fit with ease http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-rrtx3e22pkr1
  6. is the TX3 more effective than the 212 evo?
  7. No less being smaller.
  8. I think I will be buying the Tx3 seeing as it is considerably cheaper aswell..
