Does the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO fit in the Corsair Carbide Spec-02?
I´m having this doubt since I´ve seen many people asking this question. Some say it fits, some say it depends (not sure on what).

jimthenagual said:According to Corsair's site on that case, it has a Maximum CPU Cooler Height 157mm.
They hyper 212 evo requires at least 159mm.
Some may have found ways to make it fit, but the official response from Corsair would be that no, it doesn't fit (according to their homepage information).
Video of a Spec-02 build with Hyper 212. (Go to 2:38).
I'm just going by what the official websites say.
Corsiar page, look under the tech spec tab:
Hyper 212 evo page, look under the specs tab
But judging by that video it looks like, contrary to official info, it is possible.
FM2 and FM2+ use the same cooler mounts.
