Buying a new case. Potentially the Thor v2. Questions?

I'm planning on buy a new case, and the Rosewill Thor v2 looks like a large, roomy case, but I have to ask a few questions about it.

I had to return the last case I had because, short of cutting off parts of the case, it wasn't gonna work.

Does anyone:

1. Know the measurements between the case-back panel cutout and the cutout for the CPU cooler, and does anyone know the dimensions for the cutout?

2. Any recommendations for other cases if you think they're any better?

3. General information about this case?

If you've never used this case before, and you're just speculating, please don't answer.

I currently have about 450, using 299 USD for a GPU, this one seems well within a budget. Would either of these go on sale on cyber Monday though? Also, what I really need emphasized is the fact that I need to make sure the cutout will line up _before_ I buy it.

Protip: u means you, you'r should be your. :\

So the cutout is perfect.

Personally i would choose corsair graphite 600T if u can find it with window.
If not i would get the 650D.

Haf is also great but i dont like that red LED so i would have to change it.

Ok i just checked them , And i think that Haf 932 wont work.

So choose one from corsair.

Both 600T and 650D have a larger CPU cutout and will let you to use the UD3.

There wont be any problem at all :) 

Edit :

Just facts

Look where the standoff can be placed.

The cutout is big enough as 3/4 of the mobo !

Does your motherboard cutout have foam stuff in between the metal panel and the connectors? I found that my gigabyte UD3H has this foam stuff that pushes it back too much and messes up the whole fit for the rest of the pcie components.
