U12 is a massive cooler for a mid case, I have one in my thermaltake armour mx with about 5mm to spare between the sidepanel.

Looks pretty cool though!

Just specify to msy when they build that if it doesnt fit than to use a UH9.

Dont think you will have a problem fitting it though it will be rather tight.

Just in case, look for specs for the case. Noctua is 158mm tall and add 30mm just to be sure. So your Antec must be at least 188mm wide - again, check the specs on their website.

PS. Noctua rules! :)
