Hello guys! I'm building a gaming PC now on a budget and i need a case that fits Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo. I've heard a lot of good things about it and I've seen a lot of people recomend it. Another option i have is Cooler Master Seidon 120V which is a water cooler. As for the case i really like this one:
http://www.hl-eshop.com/one_product.php?view_data=1|14|0|23172|0|1&lang=EN

Here are its specs from the site:
Case Type - Entry Mid Tower
Material 0.5mm
Chassis Dimensions : 405mm(H) x 180mm(W) x400mm(D) / Overal:430mm(H) x 200mm(W) x440mm(D)
Height limit for CPU coolers ( Without side fan ): 158mm

And here's a link to the producer's site:
http://www.aerocool.com.tw/index.php/gt/chassis/40-case...

So would it fit either of the coolers i listed above? The PC specs are: Intel i5 4690k, XFX R9 270X, XFX Core Edition 750W, 2x4GB GEIL EVO VELOCE, WD Caviar Blue 1TB.

if the case cooler clearance is accurate then no the hyper 212 will not fit because its 158.6 mm in height but generally the clearance level are not exactly the same as mentioned its a bit more than that for that case it would be a tight fit ........ if u have not already bought that case then get a case with cooler level clearance of 160mm or more...

Are there any downsides to using that water cooling instead of a normal air one? Do i have to change the liquid periodically? I have never used water cooling before so I don't know its pros and cons.
Also are there any smaller air coolers that would still work with my setup?

pros : less noise, no height issues, gives u more oc headroom, lower case temps

cons: much more expensive (u can get a good air cooler at the price of an entry level water cooler) & in the event of a leakage, expensive components in a PC system can be destroyed in no time.

So I think I'd better off getting a wider case and an air cooler then. I'm looking at Raidmax STINGRAY 249W now. Its 490x201x450. I think that would fit the Hyper 212 Evo. What do you think? The site does't provide any info on max cooler hight. Here is a link just in case:
