Windows 7: Is this all compatible or...?

Is this all compatible or...?

Okay so I want to upgrade my CPU cooler(stock) to an CM Evo 212.
This is my current build ( AMD FX-6300, Gigabyte Radeon R9 270X, Corsair SPEC-01 RED - System Build - PCPartPicker United Kingdom ).
When I added the Evo 212 to the part list it said this and I was wondering will this totally prevent me from getting this?

If this incompatibility note doesn't affect it, is there anything else that would stop me from getting it?

Thanks

If there was an issue it would be the depth of the case for the height of the cooler. Mounting should be a piece of cake and somehow I think the case depth and cooler heights should still play nice together.

IMHO I would just go with a H80i or H100i water cooler and call it a day.

Looking at compatible coolers the 212 Evo isn't listed.....just go sealed water it totally rocks and cleans up the look as well as has a huge cooling capacity.

Just went water cooling myself and what a difference. I agree completely. The only thing I would caution about water coolers like the sealed ones, is to make sure they will fit in the case without any difficulty. I had a terrible time getting my radiator mounted in my new HAF 912+ even though it had space for a 240mm cooler.

It never hurts to check the measurements first.
