Default Carbide 500R CPU maximum heatsink height??

Hiya, I am looking to see if the Thermalright Archon CPU Heatsink will fit in this case - what is the maximum height of cooler the case can take??

The height of the Archon is 170mm btw - which I believe would fit in the 650D/600T.

Hi,
the case 600T has a width from 265 mm.
The 650D has a width from 229 mm.
The fan is 170 mm.

Hope, that helps.

Hi,
the 500R: 20.5” x 8.1” x 20”.

1 Zoll = 2,54 cm.

But what is inset distance of the mobo on the 500R?

8.1"= 205.7mm - 170mm (Archon height)= 35.7mm = 1.4".

1.4" - ??? = ???

You will have about 5.5" of clearance depending on the MB you use but that should be about right for most

Then, at 170mm (6.69"), the unusually tall Archon will not quite fit in the 500R. I assume that 5.5" of clearance includes the extra space created by the side panel flaring. That is what I was uncertain about because the listed case width is 8.11", and, visually, the expanded side panels make the case look wider than that. Much thanks for your reply.
