Enough space for components?

I am thinking of a new system and I'm looking at basics:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ / 2.4 GHz Dual-Core
Gigabyte - GA-M59SLI-S5 Motherboard
Zalman CNPS9500-AM2 Socket AM2 Heatsink
Antec P180B - Case

I'm slightly unsure as to whether there will be plenty of space for
the Zalman Heatsink - its dimensions are given as: 85(L) X 112(W) X

Anyone have anything similar size wise or anyone see any problems?

While I'm not familiar with this kit, I'd be suprised if you have any
problems.  You usually have acres of space above the cpu and while the
cooler is a little taller than normal, its other dimensions are quite
average these days.  The Antec P180B is quite a wide case and while I
don't have any experience of them I'd say there is almost certainly
room for it.  I wouldn't be worrying about it if I bought the above
set up.
