I'm considering a Dark Rock Pro 4, but some say that the height is more than the 163mm advertised. They say be quiet! didn't count in the mounting hardware?
Some measured 175mm from the motherboard and that would be too big for me.

Can someone measure the cooler from the motherboard? (also height of the cooler + socket?)

You're adding socket height to the cooler height, but you are asking for cooler height assuming it is incorrect because you wish to have it include the socket. (is this correct?)

What is cooler height your case supports? Is that listed? I don't recall measuring a cooler greater than 165mm in any of my reviews.
