So here's my current build ...
It says, under incompatibilities, "Unable to verify the Rosewill THOR V2 ATX Full Tower Case and the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler are compatible."
But, I have both of those, and they fit just fine. Here are links to a couple photos:
In the first pic, you can see that I have the fan slightly elevated to make sure I've cleared the RAM.
In the second pic, if you look carefully, you'll see that the side fan on the case is below where the CPU cooler is.
Oh and please excuse the dust. :)
The issue is lack of specs from rosewill. they do not list max cpu cooler height.
