CPU cooler height clearance Tags: Heatsinks Cooling Cases CPUs Overclocking Last response: August 26, 2011 2:28 PM in Overclocking Share dragonic2020 August 26, 2011 1:28:31 PM The case I bought rates the cooler height at 159mm. The Hyper 212+ is 158.5mm high. So, in theory the cooler should fit in my case with 0.5mm of clearance. But is this a good idea?
