Antec One case and Hyper 212 plus ... thoughts ...

I have a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus and plan on a Intel 1155 socket mobo. I was liking the Antec One case as a budget option with USB 3.0 jacks but a review pointed out the case has 155 mm of clearance for a cooler and the Hyper box shows it is 158.5 mm tall.

Are these two parts not going to co-exist?! I would be interested in knowing if anyone has built a PC with these two parts ... or maybe recommend a budget case that could handle the cooler, something in the sub-$50 category.

At this point I'm dropping some cases from my list of choices because I can't get a dimension of "cooler clearance".

I know for a fact that this case, or the Rosewill Blackbone will be able to support the 212+ (personal experience, my brother had used the case for awhile :)  )

I wouldn't really recommend the Blackbone, though. I find the top mounted PSU to be 'meh'.

I don't know what your budget amount is for the case but the CM Hyper 212 plus will fit in this case.

So far I have two cases that would work ...

> Cooler Master 431 Plus (with USB 3.0 on panel) ... $45
> NZXT Source 210 (the USB 3,0 version) ... $50

I have others that would also work but have USB 2.0 jacks ...
> Cooler Master 311 ... $40
> Cooler Master 430 ... $34
> Thermaltake V3 ... $50
> Thermaltake V4 ... $50

Are any of these cases a bad buy?

Your brother had the Rosewill Challenger or the Antec One?

I was originally thinking the Rosewill Future with USB 3.0 and all the fans ... but with no specs available on cooler clearance I'm not sure.

Is there clearance because the sides bubble out? So if the sides were flat panels there would be an issue??

I had sent an email to Antec support ... they said ...

Description: CPU cooler clearance for One case
Comment By: James Sean
Comment: Hello Jim, It won't fit, the One case is 208mm wide, it's too close for comfort and you'll be better off with a case that's at least around 230mm wide like the Antec Eleven Hundred for your 158mm Hyper 212.

So I have a 158.5 mm Hyper 212 Plus and I want (or maybe wanted) to buy a Antec One case ... and it appears that would be a mistake according to Antec.

What puzzles me is why they would build a case that would not allow one of the higher selling coolers to work ... if the case were just 5 mm wider?!
