Windows 7: Will the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO fit my computer?

Will the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO fit my computer?

So I just built my first computer, and I'm getting a new heatsink (the one that I currently have is super loud and noisy.) I'm not the best at heatsinks, so I'll need some help!

I have an AM3+ socket, so this heatsink is compatible. The thing I'm worrying about is will it fit my computer case, since it's a pretty big heatsink (according to most of the reviews). My computer case is: HEC 63R3BR Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Newegg.com

So will it fit? Thanks!

No, the cooler is too tall for that case.

Oh thank goodness I checked with the forums, I was just about to get it. What about the Hyper T4?

How much room do you have from the top of your CPU to the side of your case?

Sorry, but my eyeballs are no longer calibrated. All seriousness aside, it's impossible to tell accurately from a photo how much space there is from the top of the CPU to the side of the case. That measurement is essential to be sure whether a cooler will fit in the case or not. My uncalibrated gut says no to both coolers you asked about, however (in other words, my best guess would be no). That case is 1/2" narrower than my present case and neither of those coolers you asked about would fit in my case.

Hi Smizack

One option is a low profile CPU cooler, there are many on the market (do check your ram clearance)

I would use a H80i from Corsair and place it as a exhausting cooler, it will amaze you at the temperature drop.
