I just wanted to do a little fit check a cooler before I ordered it.
The CPU cooler in question is the XIGMATEK Dark Knight Night Hawk edition:
The case I already have is the Rosewill Blackhawk ATX Mid tower:
This case has a side fan, but that can be moved if necessary.
And since its also quite relevent, the Motherboard is MSI Z77A-GD65:
The big thing I'm concerned with is the height.
The cooler itself is 159mm tall, and the case is ~212mm wide. I couldn't find the hight of the motherboard, however.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Great! I kinda figured it would, with 50 mm left over for the mobo and the mobo mounting and whatnot, but it doesn't hurt to make sure.
Thanks for the quick reply.
