If you're going for a mid-level overclock of around 4.5GHz, then go with the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus. If you're going for an extreme overclock of 5.0GHz+ then I suggest something more like:

Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B
Noctua NH-D14
Thermalright Silver Arrow

...or other such "big air" coolers.

I would. The N620 has great ratings - slightly better than a Scythe Mugen 2 - and that's saying something!

I agree it's a good cooler for the price.
Kinda big(wide imo)140.8(L) x 96.4(W) x 160.7(H) mm
If that works for you get it.

Get a tape measure and find out.
I honestly don't know when you factor in the side fan.
You case is fairly wide 8.74" minus whatever thickness the fan is and leave some for right side panel and mobo standoff.
Or simply peruse Newegg feedback to see what other guys are using successfully.
Chances are if they have other 160mm tall coolers it will fit.

This is the salient point; manufacturers want to sell product, and have already made sure it will fit 90% of their market. On faith (or common-sense) I am certain it will fit a mid-tower, so it certainly will fit a full.

Guys here it is... the dimensions of hyper n620 and phantom ..

Phantom - 222 x 540 X 623 mm
Hyper n620 - 140.8 x 96.4 x 160.7 mm ( L x W x H )

I saw this hsf mounted in CM 690 II which has dimensions 214.5 x 511.8 x 528.8 mm
I think there will not be any problem mounting this hsf in phantom.. ?? :|

If you have a PHANTOM without the 200mm fan mounted you'll be fine.
The 2x120mm side fans are on the bottom of the side panel = non-issue

Corsair H70 good performer with good price.
I'm completely satisfied with H70 in my 1366 socket.

I think why not you get a asus's motherboard
check there mobos on site asus.com.I'm sure sandybridge processor's mobo. of asus's kills gigabyte's.
instead of msi vendor you may buy sapphire or asus,in performance as well as cooling because i'm not happy with msi cooling.
check kihgston hyper X h20 and corsair's dominator gt memory really superb.
Why a Nzxt phantom, i don't abut it plaes give me a link to check it out,I think you go for thermaltake's Aromor series
Display i'm completely happy with alienware with great performace i think nothing is batter than this special for gaming.
HSF?
PSU is good
Why not you buy a SSD if not,atleast you must buy a velociRaptor(600) for booting and os.

actually i am limited to a budget of 1800$ and in my region(India) all these stuff is somehow more costly than that in US, UK ... hence i have no choice but to go with the above listed config ....

Msi Gtx 560 Ti ... I found it a superb overclocker on Bit-Tech.net ... the ratings were good and so were the benchmarks... . reaching almost to the performance of a GTX 570 after being overclocked...

Gskill because.... they are having kinda funky look.. :p  i am not so damn sure about the performance difference but as stated here and even on bit-tech .. .. the Price to performance ratio was good.. :D 

Nzxt Phantom... as you know... i like funky things.. and it has a nice airflow as well.. and the mind ******* thing is that.. i will have to pay additional charges to order a Thermaltake or a Bitfenix :(  Only Coolermaster, Antec, Corsair, Iball, Silvertone and other such as Nzxt and few are available on demand.. :( 

hsf means heat sink fan.. CpU Cooler..
and thanks for the suggestion for harddisk.. :D  :D  i will update it.. :D

I used the phantom for my first build. From what i have read you can't use any fan but an NZXT fan in the case. I use a CM Hyper N520 with the NZXT side fan installed and it fits without a problem.
