    CM 212 Evo should be enough if you don't plan some radical OC. It has 120mm, 4 pin fan. If "CPU Smart Fan" is set to Disabled that means your CPU cooler fan is running full speed all the time. Watch out when you change CPU coolers. First, most probably, MB will have to be taken out to mount cooler, it has a metal base to go behind MB. It's probably going to come with a kit for mounting on all kinds of processors. As it has exposed heat pipes at the surface mating to CPU, applying paste is different too.
    My case was designed for easy heatsink installation. The panel on the right side where all the cables are hidden has 4 holes drilled for the plate. In fact that's where the plate for my current HS is. No need to take the MB off.
    Ah, that makes things easier. Where is your exhaust fan, at the back or top of the case ?

    I have two exhaust fans. The standard 120/140 on the back and a 200MM on the top plus a 200MM intake on the front.

    Perfect, you can turn cooler to blow toward either back or top.

    My buddy has opted to get me a cooler. He is getting me the CoolerMaster Hyper N520. That thing looks like a beast so it should keep me very cool.

    Looks OK. just check the height of it and if it would fit in the case.
