Hi, could anyone who owns this case tell me the absolute maximum height of a CPU cooler which will fit? If you take out everything above the MB, including SSD, optical drive and any mountings for these, whats the the distance between the CPU heatspreader and the case lid? I'm planning a future build and want to stick the largest cooler possible in this case...

The biggest cooler I've put in that case with the configuration you describe is the Scythe Big Shuriken at 58mm tall. You need to remember to leave a little room above the fan for some airflow.

I believe the actual measurement is 64.5mm.
