EDIT, ouch, I'm worried about whether this case would fit a Hyper 212+. What about a Hyper 212+ with the side panel fan in use?
it can fit a 180mm cpu heatsink a Thermalright Archon is 170mm tall and I think that's the tallest heatsink around. My only question would be will that side fan be in the way if a 120mmx25mm fan is installed? It's a little over 9 inches wide which is pretty wide for a mid tower case most mid towers are 7.5-8.5 inch range.

Slightly OT:
Those Rimowa suitcases would be perfect!

Instead of writing your system in your sig, go to "add system" and fill it out.

Got the case and got it together. My god this thing is pure sex. SO much easier to deal with wires than the last case and it's a lot quieter. She's a thing of beauty. No pics yet but I'll join the club for sure. Now I see why people love this brand. I think the pc-p50 was the red headed step child of the family because the pc-v1020 is a big step up.
