Will this heatsink fit?

Anyone know if a Hyper 212 plus or evo can fit into this build? will it be too big for the Antec 900 case? will it affect other parts?
any recommendations for a different heatsink for this processor Intel Core i7-3770K if it doesnt fit?

thanks! =)

More about will heatsink
  1. That heatsink should be just fine in that case. If you are concerned on the height of the cooler you could go with a 92mm fan cooler. Below are two pretty decent ones. However, I'd go with the CM 212 Evo.

    thanks! hopefully it works out.
  3. It should be fine. I installed one in a Cougar mid size tower case and it has a bit of room left.
