Hey guys, I am getting the NZXT Vulcan Case, and I'm gonna put the optional 200mm side fan on. With this fan on, will the current CPU cooler(Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO) fit? If not, can someone recommend one?

It should yes.. but for a single GTX 670, you don't really need the side panel fan.

I have that case. the Hyper 212 will NOT fit with the side fan. it 'barely' fits without it ( you must turn it sideways though).

I would suggest CM Gemini II S524:

this is a top down fan, so it will cool your Ram and MB chipset. it will also fit with the side fan.
