Just head onto the manufacturers website there you will find all the necessary dimensions of the cooler and you can calculate it from there.

I doubt it that cooler is 167mm tall.
Your case is 7.8" wide.
Which is tall btw compared to the competition.
Most HSF are 160mm tall or slightly less with a few exceptions.
You'd need a case 9+" wide for that cooler.
A CM 212+/EVO,Zalman Performa,Gelid Tranquillo/GX-7 are good quality coolers and under 160mm = fit no problem.

thanks for the help but can you suggest a cheap case that will fit the dark rocks in for under £50

BitFenix Survivor Core - £53.94 Inc VAT = 9" wide

If you like the CM SS 384-BiT suggested it's a good deal and should fit your cooler it's 8.6" W and has 3 fans.

The 912 has 2 fans.
The BitFenix only one.
Something definitely worth considering.

+1^ HAf 912 that should work great that is a generally designed thicker lower case that should work for you.

the thing is the price is already WAY over £50 and this is still not including delivery which is about a extra £10, and im on a really tight budget here. i wouldnt mind getting a £60 case but that is the absolutly max i can get and this is including delivery charge, is there anywhere where you ca get these cases and still get free delivery?
