Will a Dark Rock 3 CPU Cooler fit in a Phanteks P400?

Spec pages are as follows

P400 CPU Cooler clearance: 160mm

Dark Rock 3: Height = 160mm

Will this fit?

Has anyone tried this?

    It appears that at least one person in France has done that - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXwfhh7QdJo so I'm going to say "yes", it will fit

  2. I have been doing measurements my self for this case. I really want to fit my thermaltake Riing 12 cooler that is 160mm high.
    I am afraid it will touch, I have the tempered glass version which I am hoping will give it a tad bit extra room, since the glass mounts on the outside.
    When companies write the cooler heigh as 160, does that include the little nipple ends of the heat pipes that stick out?

    I have that cooler mounted in a case that is rated to take a 167mm cooler, and it barely has any clearance.

    Did the OP ever try out and see if it worked?

    I've my eyes on the same combo and was wondering if you managed to fit the cooler in the case, did you have any success?

  4. I am surprised so many people go for that cooler... have you seen the wrench thing you have to use to install it? I wouldn't go near that thing.

    Because I can buy the dark pro 3 for about 50 euros and according to some reviews it has similar performance to the D15 from noctua and in my opinion it looks better than most of the other large tower coolers.
