Case: Cooler Master HAF 922

Side fan: Cooler Master 200mm MegaFlow Fan

HSF: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus

The case does not come with a side fan, but I want to buy one for airflow reasons.

I also want an aftermarket HSF and I have seen some great reviews for that particular HSF.

My problem is... will that HSF fit into that case with a side fan installed? Without modding anything.

On another 922 case (same case but different color) is says the case can support up to a 160mm cooler, but is it taking in account the side fan being there... or not being there?

Also, on a semi-related note, the case can support up to a 190mm PSU fan... does that mean the width of the case is actually wide enough where I shouldn't worry about having that HSF and the side fan installed? As in... 30mm for the side fan depth, and 160mm for the HSF/cooler is 190mm... the same maximum size of the PSU fan...

Anyone know?

Was I coherent enough for you to understand? Heh. :pt1cable:

I don't see a problem the case is 10" wide and a 212+ is 6.24" tall leaving @ 3" for the side fan panel thickness.
I highly doubt the side fan is 3" thick 1" most likely.
1.18" thick to be exact.
Leaving you with over @ 1.5" away from the side panel.
