Thermalright Ultra 120 - will it fit in a antec p180?

I'm still waiting for the price cuts rumored to take effect next month, but I'm thinking a q6600 based system would be very cool. I'm planning an Asus P5B Del. board in an Antec p180 (or if the p182 is out by then, that) and a Thermalright Ultra 120 or 120 Extreme HS.

My question is: will the Ultra 120 fit on that board and in that case? According to their specs, it's nearly 161 mm tall which is about 6.4 inches off the board!

Anyone got the case and/or board with this HS and care to comment?

Thanks all!

Here's the specs from thermalright dot com:

it should, the antec p180 is meant for cooling.
why not find the dimensions of both, and compare?

I did...
54cm (H) x 20.5cm (W) x 50.7cm (D)
21.3"(H) x 8.1"(W) x 19.9"(D)
31/36 lbs; 14.1/16.3 kg (net/gross)

Question is how high does the board sit in the thing and how much of that 8.1" in taken up by dead space in the case (the walls + whatever thickness of dead space due to folds, etc.) It's just guessing until you actually hear it from someone with that setup -- or someone unfortunate enough to attempt the setup and fail.

yeah, i have a p180 sitting in my room, but i havent used it YET, lol :D 

it is a very roomy case, against what others say.
im rly thinking that it will fit, as it is made for high end coolers.

i know that it was made around the scythe ninja, and those are...

Heatsink Dimensions 110 x 110 x 150mm

thats from the egg, and im pretty confident it will fit.
if im correct, isnt the ninja TALLER than the thermalright?

Unless the cpu sits up a lot further from the back of the case than mine does, it should fit into any 200mm wide case with a bit over a cm to spare.
