I am looking at building a system in the corsair spec-delta carbide series (links below) and I want to put a be quiet dark rock 4 in it. Now the cooler is 159.4mm and the case gives clearance of 160mm for a cpu cooler. So I was wondering if this would be too close or if corsair are over compensating to be on the safer side?

Thanks

I wouldn't chance it. If it turns out that they rounded up to the nearest millimeter - some of them do - what will you do when you find you aren't able to close the side panel?

If the cooler were 158mm and the case clearance was 160mm, I wouldn't have a problem with it.
