I currently have an older Lian Li PC-62 case.
http://www.lian-li.com/v2/en/product/product06.php?pr_i...

Was wondering if anyone had any experience with this case and the fit/clearance of any of the following coolers:

COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO

COOLER MASTER Hyper N 520
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
ZALMAN CNPS9500A-LED 92mm
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED 120mm
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Also, if you were to pick one based solely upon my case which one would it be?
Any recommendations on any other coolers are welcome as well. Thanks in advance.

Your case is wider than most modern cases. It will fit anything you like to throw at it. It doesn't have very good cooling though.

As an example, your case is 8.2" wide while the Antec Nine Hundred is 8.1". Rosewill Challenger is 7.48" wide and yet THAT accommodates most or all tall air coolers.

Pick the 212 Evo as it's most cost effective.

On the case, I think I would mod the side door to take a 140mm fan.

I do have a see through panel door with a 120mm fan mounted on it. I figured I would not be able to use though considering the height of the cooler.
Fan is placed rather high up and not centered. Well center of the case but higher vertically.

I also have my hdd's mounted in a new cage where the 5.25's would go that has a 120mm fan as well.

I see you recommended the EVO, is there a different cooler you would recommend? Preferably not over $50.

Many thanks for your quick response. Very hard to judge even with a ruler. For me anyway :pt1cable:
