Hello,

Based on a couple of reviews, the maximum CPU cooler height is ~160mm in the NZXT Phantom 410, and the Thermalright Macho-Rev.A has a height of 162mm. It might fit, but would definitely be fairly tight, and there's a good chance it would be touching the window of the case. So it would probably fit, but I cannot guarantee it fitting without issues.

I cannot guarantee it fitting without issues.
i could. (after a 2 minutes google search)


I bought it and its fit without any problems and I think there is 1-2mm extra :peace:
obvious, i could fit a 162mm IFX-14 with a TY-147 in a Corsair Carbide Spec-01 which list max cooler to 150mm (ok the side panel barely closed but wasn't completely shifted out of place.

btw specs are always listed in review or specsheet aka: google the name of your case with the keywords "specs" or "review" or even "max cpu cooler size" also for motherboard compatibility : retailer etailer and manufacturer website always list the socket compatibility. (short: Google is your friend ;) )

the macho is not that big in the end isn't it? but price to perf ratio : it's a king
