CPU cooler height clearance

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?

  1. Clearance is clearance. A tiny bit is enough.

    Hm, I'm still not convinced.
    Is the cooler height rating only a recommendation and where do they measure from?

    For some reference, here is the case I bought.
