Will the Heatsink fit my Chasis?

Hi guys. I've decided to get an HD 7970 card soon and was thinking of finally begin learning how to OC my i7 920 CPU. The stock cpu fan i have right now is thick with dust and the airflow doesn't really get into it, so I thought i could grab an aftermarket Heatsink.

But I'm not sure if it will fit or not for my current case (as this is my first time using an aftermarket heatsink).

My case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119160

Will it fit? or not?

  1. I've got the HAF 912, which is only 0.1" wider than your case, and I've got room for a Cooler Master V8, which is the same size fundamentally as the 212+.

    I also have a HAF 912. My 212 EVO is 0.5mm taller than the 212+ and fits with room to spare. I have a 140mm fan in my side panel but it extends below the cooler so it is no issue. Your 230mm side fan may extend up to where it is partially in line with the cooler. That would be the only 'iffy' issue. Even with that, I believe there is enough room for the 1" thick fan to clear the cooler.

  3. Ahh I see. I was afraid the heatsink might block the entire airflow from the side panel 230mm fan. Thanks!
