    Intel i7 2600k / MSI z68A-G43 / HAF 912 plus 750+80 bronze / XFX HD7970 / Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB
    Its my system planning to get a good cooler but heard some bad news about that crap rams but heard something about d-14 I can pull up the small fan so it gives some more place for rams. If someone had a experiement or knowledge about that situation it would be great:)

    yes, it can work, but it depends on the board. Definitely not ideal though.

    You can see in these pics how the heatsink itself can overhang two ram slots, nevermind the fan, so this may be the issue that prevents it from working.

    I suggest the LP Vengeance, or maybe some ripjaws.

    now, the top pic is mushkin Ridgebacks, and the bottom is Dominator GT's. as far as i know the Vengeance and Dominator GT's are around the same height.

    I got another question now really its so complicated:)
    COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO= 50$
    Corsair H100 = 140 $
    There is so much difference really i dont want to waste my money. I just wrote my system and want to work my i7 2600k @ 4.5ghz. So I have checked my tests about hyper 212 evo but everyone is different so i couldnt trust. What u think about that can i do that with that cooler? how much temps i can get free/load with this and what about noise may be u can tell some values like more or less
