Seems like it, with one diagonal piece on the back. Shouldn't be a problem though. They made the sticking part always above the I/O ports, as was the intention I guess.

Yeah, this blows (heh). I have the Rev B cooler and it JUST fits in my Fractal Node 202. It does an awesome job so far but pity I won’t have an upgrade option down the road. If only they kept it the same height...

I would had liked to see a Rev B simply with higher fin surface area and am4 support but yeah this BS3 is no longer an option for 202 owners .

You can get a 50 dollar coolermaster AIO with single 120mm rad that will kick that things ass.
There is really no point in air coolers anymore.

And that AIO will fit in under 7cm with no space to spare and no other place to mount radiator?
This is targeted primarily to ITX and SFF. Big Shuriken 2B was/is steadfast in that space.

Not everybody wants a bunch of liquid in their computer. I'd rather live with higher temps than a non-zero chance that my computer will be irreparably damaged due to leakage. Also, in a small form factor case, it's not a given that you have space for a radiator or that you would necessarily get better temps with a tiny rad.

This height is with a 25mm fan. You could replace it with a 14 mm fan and it would be the same height.

EDIT: Never mind, their site stated that's 69 mm with the 14 mm fan. I'll just stick with my Shadow Rock LP I guess.
