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.
