Best heatsink for NZXT hades case

Guys having a little trouble picking out a heatsink for my new build. I have an NZXT hades case and i keep reading that certain heatsinks wont fit in it. I was wondering if anyone has this case and what they used on there's bc of space issues?

  1. The CPU heatsink height clearance for the case is 131.5mm if you install a 200mm side fan, 165mm if you don't. If you choose not to install the side fan, the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus is a decent heatsink which measures at 158.5mm high, and thus will fit in the NZXT Hades.

    That is wht i have read on newegg but i am wondering if i oc to 3.9ghz will the hyper 212 be enough to keep it cool? New to overclocking so not sure how much i will need to keep my cpu cool
  3. From this review http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=2525&page=5 Hyper 212 Plus seems to be a good choise.

    But if you want to use the side fan you can go for OCZ Vendetta 2. And you can also try to find a better ranked cooler with less than 131.5mm.
