Query about the Asus Sabertooth Z77 Motherboard

The Sabertooth Z77 has the thermal armour which adds a shroud over the rear I/O plug things. I am wondering whether or not this would affect putting in a Corsair H80 at the back of a CM 690 II Advanced, in push/pull configuration.

I'd prefer if someone either already has this setup or can do it first hand and take some pictures, but if you can't do that, then i guess calculating the measurements and guessing whether it will fit or not will suffice.

It is almost guaranteed that i will get the case and the Sabertooth Z77, hopefully the H80 will fit.

the Sabertooth does not stick out above the I/O shield area so it won't interfere with the installation of a 120mm rad at the back - on the second picture down on this link, you'll see how much room is between the top of the mobo and the fans at back (enough)

Yeah I just realised that the radiator on the H80 has a 120mm width, and it only sticks out a bit on the top and bottom.

Thanks for linking the pictures, very reassuring!
