So, the real question is does this new built-in compatibility feature work?

http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/cpu-cooler/?compatible_with=xion-case-xon560bk#sort=d3

That link supposedly shows all coolers compatible with that case and the 212 EVO is shown. When you look up compatible video cards the one in his list is there too... (and that Xon case is in the list of compatible cases when you look up the 212 EVO)

If you're open to any suggestions, here's an i5 build:

the i5 will be faster than an overclocked 6300 for gaming

mobo with sata III, similar features otherwise

cheaper RAM

cheaper GPU, the 270 is just a lower clocked 270X. OC 100mhz on the core clock and you have a 270x essentially.

swapped monitor for one that has an IPS panel, for better colors and viewing angles

The EVO should fit, here's a complete build using the EVO in that case:

That is strange. Reading reviews on newegg/amazon several people have fit coolers in that are larger than 155mm so I only assume the specs listed are wrong or were measured not including the extra room given by the raised side panel area (or something).
