Yes it will - though just barely. Here's a picture of it in my case:



And the clearance, note that I have a 140mm fan installed in the side and it's nearly touching the heatsink:



Since it's such a close fit you will need to make sure you are using low profile RAM or RAM without heat spreaders if you want to have a fan on the RAM side of the cooler, otherwise you can move the fan near the exhaust. I'm using Corsair XMS3 RAM, which fits perfectly.

Can't fault the 200R, especially for its price. Widely considered the new standard for budget cases. Great features, design and cooling options.
Plus it looks very sleek thumb.gif

I would recommend to use a front fan for the hard drive cage, specially if you're using 2 or more HDs.

I've heard that the 200R plastic Hard Drive Cage could trap some of the hard drives heat.

Look at this thread:

Nice, I like it. Not sure what it is, probably the fans but nice job looks clean.

Got another email from Corsair's mailing list. 50% off ANY refurb cases from their web store. Use code "spring2013". Offer good from 3/14-3/17.

Dunno about any heat problems around the hard drive cage.
I use two SSD's and two HDD's, along with a Xilence Redwing 120mm fan blowing onto them in the lower fan position. OEM supplied Corsair fan above the hard drive cage.
Unlike the chap in that post, i left a gap between the HDD's for airflow, using the 1st and 3rd slots rather than 1st and 2nd.

I've heard that the 200R plastic Hard Drive Cage could trap some of the hard drives heat.

This is true, and is my main issue with the case. Even with a bottom front fan the airflow isn't great, about 80-85% of the air is being blocked.
I managed to improve airflow a bit by taking out the plastic clips on the right side and just screwing the HDDs in, but with 4 3.5" drives installed they still sit about 12C above ambient. I'm using a bgears B-blaster 120mm, so no issues with static pressure or airflow there.

Aside from the drive cage I'd say the case is pretty much perfect. It can fit the tallest air coolers, single rad CLCs, even dual rads with a bit of modding. The airflow is also very good, all the 140mm fan mounts are great to see on such a cheap case. Plus it's basically a blank slate if you're into case modding.
