The case is only 7.09" wide and the 212 Evo requires a case width of at least 7.26" at the absolute minimum. You'll need a low(er) profile cooler. m 0 l trevatheruiner1 October 12, 2012 7:18:55 PM Bummer. is the 212+ smaller? m 0 l Related resources Heatsink won't fit on my motherboard - Forum New heatsink wont fit? - Forum Will this heatsink fit my motherboard - Forum Will this fit in a 1150 socket in my h87-hd3?

Nah, I'd suggest something like the Hyper TX3. It's not quite as good as the 212+/Evo, but it's still good and it'll fit.
