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).

Thanks.

    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).
  3. I'm just going by what the official websites say.

    Corsiar page, look under the tech spec tab:
    http://www.corsair.com/en-us/carbide-series-spec-02-red-led-mid-tower-gaming-case

    Hyper 212 evo page, look under the specs tab
    http://www.coolermaster.com/cooling/cpu-air-cooler/hyper-212-evo/

    But judging by that video it looks like, contrary to official info, it is possible.
  4. Some say it fits and others have said it slightly touches the side of the case.
  5. I´m probably going for the Corsair Graphite 230T Black-Windowed. A little bit more expensive, but I like it and the Hyper 212 fits perfectly.

    Any problems with this case?
