Does anyone out there know if a COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus will fit in a Wave Master TAC-T01-E1C case?

My case: COOLER MASTER Wave Master TAC-T01-E1C

The fan & heatsink I am considering: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

My motherboard:Asus M4A78T-E

Thanks for any feedback!

Don't buy the Hyper 212 Plus, buy the hyper 212 EVO. It's the same size, but a better cooler.

Thanks for the reply dirtyferret. I saw the specs on each of these previous to this post. With a case 7.8" wide and the heatsink being 6.2", that only leaves 1.6" of interior space (maybe). My concern is how much room does the motherboard tray, and motherboard itself, take out of the 1.6" remaining. Opening the case and taking very crude measurements, it looks like I have about 6" exactly. I could take everything out and measure precisely, but I am hoping there is someone here with the same case?

Thanks again.

And thanks for the recommendation on the other heatsink Ablekl, it does look better!

i had the exact same cooler in a case that was 7.3" wide, the top of cooler was flush against the side panel but that was fine. It's doubtful your case has more then 1" (probably 1/2") in room for cables on the back panel and the mobo takes up very little space.
