    Hi guys,

    Just wondering if anyone else has this setup.

    ASRock Z68 Extreme 4 + Corsair Vengeance RAM on all 4 slots + Havik 140 cooler?

    Possible? Stupid me bought Vengeance sticks a while back. :(

    The clearance on the havik 140 is pretty bad,look like it may be a tight fit

    well, not talking about clearance, but does it "reach" the RAM slots?

    yes of course it is the fans that reach the RAM slots.

    i was thinking that the position of RAM slots differed slightly from motherboard to motherboard. is this not the case? then it seems like it would fit.

    wait. all those are 6 slots motherboards. any idea about 4 slots? i mean, common sense makes you think that it would fit in 4 slot mobo, but you never know. maybe the slot positioning (how fast it is from the CPU) is different.

    I would think the first slot would be covered by the fan. Just roughly estimating the distance of the first slot from the CPU socket of the Asrock board though.
