Can this CPU cooler fit my case?

So about 2 years ago I purchased an ASUS M32BF-B03 , and wow is this thing garbage. That aside, I've since added an AMD xfx 7850 GPU to it, a 650 watt power supply, and now I just need a fan. I've had my eye on the Hyper 212 evo by Cooler Master but I'm not certain whether or not it can fit my case. This build only had the stock AMD A10 cooler in it, and it gets extremely loud and hot. (Up to 70 C or higher in games like Overwatch if I don't put some sort of frame cap.) Here is a link to the exact cooler I'm looking at getting, the GPU I've already installed, and my case.

    The Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo is a large/bulky cooler, measuring ~159mm in height. It *might* be a tight fit in your M32BF-B03 (if I'm not mistaken, it *might* not even fit).

    Consider using the Cryorig H7 instead (http://www.cryorig.com/h7_us.php). It only measures ~145mm in height, but, performs better than the Hyper 212 Evo.



    It costs ~$35 in newegg (https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA4UF2DZ6565) and in amazon (https://www.amazon.com/CRYORIG-Tower-Cooler-Intel-CPUs/dp/B00S7YA5FQ)

    No, miraculously this PC came prebuilt functioning with only a CPU cooler somehow, and I think my next investment will probably be a case fan after I figure out where I can mount one in my case, but for right now the GPU actually usually stays pretty cool so I'm not too worried about it right now.

    Thanks for the input, and it definitely seems like a neato cooler. I'm gonna check it out a bit more, but I think I'm gonna get the H7.
