Thread: P400 and Coolmaster EVO212

    P400 and Coolmaster EVO212


    I'm building a new system. It consist of a gigabyte z170 gaming 7 motherboard, a p400 case, and a Cooler Master 212EVO cooler. Unfortunately the first thing I found was a DOA motherboard. So that is being sent back and the eta on a new one from Newegg is 2 weeks.

    In the mean time, I have the case and the cooler. I was looking at the cooler's height and started to second guess myself about it fitting in the case. I do not have the mainboard for measuring and the Newegg's return policy time may run out before I get the mainboard back.

    The spec on the P400 states 160mm clearance for the CPU cooler. The 212EVO spec states 160mm height. So the numbers match up but just barely.

    Does anyone know for sure about the fitment? Any relative thoughts on the subject are welcome.

    A CPU cooler 160mm tall will easily fit in the P400. The 160mm specification means any cooler 160mm or shorter will fit.

    TY Doyll.

    Newegg just sent a replacement board out today. Should have it in a couple days barring weather. I'll hold off ordering another cpu cooler based on your response.

    And I thank all who offered input on this as well.
