    i installed mine last night and it touches the heatsink screw for the graphics card. I have seperated them by a piece of thick clear plastic so they never touch. I will try to take a picture for you at the weekend.

    Ill keep you posted............cheers

    Here u can see the space between the gfx and the dimm-sockets. I think it is less then 1cm too, but didn't mesured it. Maybe i will do that later. :)

    I was planning on getting the OCZ cooler for my system (love the grill and angled setup) but could not find it local. I also heard that the Dominator fans don't work well with regular RAM heatsinks (plus fans are smaller than OCZ's and it cost like 7 dollars more). So I had to use some imagination and couple of old HW I had and come up with my home made cheap looking memory cooler. Pretty much 2 80mm Antec fans with 1 dollar grills and a couple of screws.
    Haven't checked how well they work though. Need a therm monitor.
