    I can't fit my memory in tri channel set up due to the A70's fan covering memory slots. I'm using a Gigabyte 58A-UD3R. Has anyone made this happen? Maybe using different fans. I have an H50 I'm not using but could go back to if needed. I switched to the A70 due to thinking my H50 was faulty (bad temps), but thats in another thread... :p

    Any help would be appreciated :toast:

    Yep, I know that problem...

    I am running a H60, so I would not have to deal with the clearance problems of the ram heat spreaders.

    You can go spreaderless ( or, some low profile ) ram or back to the H50 or, maybe, run with one fan (That would probably suck on the temps though).
    Looks like the manufacturers would have overcome the clearance thing by now.
