From my experience, if the specs are saying that it will be to tall, then it most likely will be. What I've found though the V6: 131.5 x 120 x 165 mm (5.2 x 4.7 x 6.5 inch) and the FT03: Limitation of CPU cooler 167mm. With that you should be just fine but just barely.

V6: http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6667
Dimensions: 131.5 x 120 x 165 mm (5.2 x 4.7 x 6.5 inch)

Silverstone FT03: http://www.silverstonetek.com/produc...=FT03&area=usa
Limitation of CPU cooler: 167mm

Look at the specs of both.
