    The case is 8.35 inches wide. Figure on conservatively needing an extra 1.5 to 2.0 inches for the height of the top of the CPU to the side panel below the CPU. This makes for a estimated necessary clearance of 6.35 inches. The height of your heat sink is 159 mm which equals 6.26 inches. The difference is 0.11 inches...estimated. I think the answer is that it will probably clear but not definitely.

    For the PSU in that case it does not look like you have any depth restrictions. Both the case and the PSU are ATX therefore the faceplate of the PSU is supposed to mate with the case properly.

    Just curious, which graphics cards are you using that require a 1000 watt PSU? In most cases a 750 watt PSU will cover this.

    and so you think it could possibly fit with my heatsink. I just really what a case that is not huge and has a great window to view inside.

    If you have not yet purchased those video cards, One 580 will be far more stable than SLI 570 setup. Just my 2 cents!
