Spec 01 problems

I have recently purchased a Spec 01 and also plan on using a hyper 212 Evo to cool my cpu. Will the evo be able to fit in the spec 01 or should i get a different cooler?

Tech specs for the case - http://www.corsair.com/en-gb/carbide-series-spec-01-red-led-mid-tower-gaming-case - say it will take a CPU cooler up to 150mm.

Tech specs for the cooler - http://www.coolermaster.com/cooling/cpu-air-cooler/hyper-212-evo/ - say it is 159mm high.

It ain't going to fit.

wow, that's even less than i thought. pcpp doesn't flag these with coolers up to 155mm tall. cryorig has a real winner with the H7.

go for the be quiet pure rock or cryorig H7. the pure rock is about even with the 212 evo's performance but a few mm shorter in height. the h7 outperforms both nicely, doesn't interfere with ram slots and is much shorter than both, the sizes are:

159mm tall - 212 evo (will not fit in the newer corsair and thermaltke budget cases, or will just barely fit the spec line)

155mm tall - pure rock

145mm tall - H7
