If you take the side panel off and then take a piece of string and wrap it all the way around your case, then take a measurement from the top of the CPU to the edge of the string, that should tell you, approximately, so long as you don't have a side panel with any weird shaped cutouts or irregularities to it, or fans mounted on it, about how much clearance you need.

Being as the Gammaxx GT BK is only 156mm it SHOULD fit the majority of mid tower cases.
