    I am planning to get the APEVIA X-TELSTAR-AL. (Un)fortunately, my CPU heatsink is huge. I have the Cooler Master Hyper 212+. Will I be able to fit it into the case without removing the side fan?

    The length of the CPU heatsink attachment is 4.5". The CM212+ is 4.72".

    Sorry but where do you get 77mm from? The heatsink has a 120mm fan attached.

    Correct. It's 158.5mm from base to the top of the heatpipe.

    I think it will be a close call.
