Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120mm "Core Contact Freezer" CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

But it looks like it might have clearance problems when latching the heatsink onto the bracket. So if you get it either check to make sure it won't or simply hook the bracket up to the heatsink before hooking it up to the motherboard.

I would search and see what other people have with that case. I know that the 120mm coolers don't fit in the old antec 900, people had to do some mods or something to get them to fit. In my cosmos I had to take the side fan out. So I would do some searching before you order.

I speak from experience that the Core Contact fits in the Antec 300. I just put one in a friends Antec 300.
