If not, can you recommend a good one for me? I am quite clueless about CPU Coolers, to be frank...

oof. im not sure. it would be a tight fit.

the evo measures around 6 inches, your case is 7.5 wide.

however that doesnt include backplate clearance.

id say itd fit... but dont hold me to it.

if youre not overclocking though, stock should be fine

the problem is, my stock one died. :( What do you think of this one though? It is not quite popular as the Hyper Evo, but it is about an inch smaller. Would you reccomend it? http://www.coolermaster.com/product/Detail/cooling/cpu-air-cooler/geminii-s524.html
