Hi,

I am planning on getting a CPU cooler to do moderate overclocking on my 3570k. I am looking at Cooler Master's Hyper 212 EVO, since it's well-priced and reviews seems favorable.

I'm just hoping this tower cooler would fit in my case and on mobo/RAM.

I have a Rosewill Redbone U3, Gigabyte Z77-D3H, and Kingston 2x4Gb Ram (not sure which series... I'll check tonight when I get home).

I wanted to note that the above answer is NOT correct. I own a Rosewill Redbone U3 case, a ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS motherboard, and a CM Hyper 212 Evo cooler.

The CM Hyper 212 Evo cooler does indeed fit inside of a Rosewill Redbone U3 case with the lid closed. There is roughly 0.1 cm clearance between the end of the heat pipes and the case wall.

So you can use the CM Hyper 212 Evo but its a very tight fit. I've had no issues though and it was the perfect cooler for my configuration.

Can you keep the side fan on while the EVO is in there? If not, hows the airflow with just the mediocre front fan?
