hi everybody,

i have a problem fitting a hyper 212 evo into my new build. Here are a list of my parts:

Cooler Master RC-430-KWN1 Elite 430 Midi Tower Case

INTEL Core I7-2600K CPU

Asus P8Z68-V/Gen3 Mainboard LGA 1155 Z68 MOBO

Corsair CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9B 16GB (4x4GB)

The 212 evo is too big and wont fit in.

Are there any smaller coolers that will fit my case and parts?

Also, i know the I7 2600K has its own stock cooler. Would this be sufficient? At the moment i have no plans to over clock. Also, i will be using the computer for music production (Ableton) if this helps.

Many thanks

Use the stock cooler and replace it later, if it's to noisy. Without overclocking that's the only reason to replace it.

Is it because of your RAM? Because Corsair create Low Profile RAM which is good for big fans especially a hyper 212 EVO

right could also be because of the ram. if you aren't wanting to change out the ram something like a h80/i would be a decent way to go.

I heard that the ram could be the problem. I i think in the future i will invest in h80. Thanks

Look at the H80i if you have the money that or the H100i if your case is compatible. Judging by this video I would stick to the h80i I don't like having to top mount fans to accommodate the h100

Cool. Will do

I made a notation I would stay away from the h100i as the clearance for case mounted fans to the unit would prove to be a PITA!!!!!!
