Hello,

I need little help with case. I have Cooler Master Elite 330 which max cpu cooler height is 163mm and Noctua has 165mm. Everyone says it wont fit in case so if its true i need to find case for good price. Best option is with glass on side as it is in CM Elite 330. Can you help me please? Thank you for any response.

If your manual says it'll fit, then there's no harm in trying initially? Worst-case, you end up buying a case regardless because it doesn't fully fit & you leave the side panel off...

As for a new case, you have an ATX board.
EuroZone availability/pricing varies dramatically, but <80EUR is a solid budget for a case IMO.

Spain: https://es.pcpartpicker.com/products/compare/xRjG3C,QNXfrH,4vzZxr,v622FT/

A lot of the same types of options in there, but regional availablilty/pricing changes what's particularly viable location to location.
Where are you located, specifically?

Well everywhere is 163mm but in manual for 330 elite it says 166,6 so im now really confused what is correct. Anyway something to max 80 Euro would be nice. Ill have MB Gigabyte Aorus Pro Wifi, and maybe that window would be nice to have. I dont need nothing special :)

Im from Czech Republic. Ill try the first scenario and see if it fit in. If not ill buy new case. From options you posted i like Zalman - Z1 Neo ATX Mid, Cooler Master - MasterBox MB510L ATX Mid Tower Case and maybe Zalman - Z3 Plus ATX Mid. This case looks interesting too Cooler Master - MasterBox TD500 ATX Mid Tower Case
Zalman Z1 looks really nice, i like it so maybe i buy this case if i must. I hope i can get parts together next month and then ill see and write you result :) To be honest i hope i dont need to buy new case but we shall see ;)
Thank you for your response.
Have a nice day :)
