Sorry Redsun, but I'm calling BS on your statement that the 212 wont hit. It will fit. It will be close (as most aftermarket coolers are in midtowers), but it WILL fit. I think the darknight is a shade bigger and that will even fit as well.
Maybe I just got an undersized case, or an oversized cpu cooler, but I had both, and the hyper 212 did not fit in my NZXT gamma case
