Solved Asus P8Z77-V Le Plus, Cooler Fan and RAM Tags: Overclocking RAM Cooling Fan Motherboards Asus Last response: May 24, 2013 3:46 PM in Overclocking Share ScorchedEarth May 24, 2013 12:54:49 PM So I'm looking to build a new rig, seriously considering the Asus P8Z77-V Le Plus, the Intel i7-3770K, and some decent RAM, like the G. Skill Ripjaw X Series. My concern is whether an after market cooler fan will block one of the RAM slots. Wondering if anyone's got some experience with the subject, and if so, what cooler to consider.

Otherwise, get low profile RAM (it often says in the product name itself) to make sure and it'll fit. m 0 l Best solution killerhurtalot a b V Motherboard May 24, 2013 1:30:26 PM The Ripjaw X series is low enough to fit under pretty much all of the coolers. If you want something cheap, then get a CM 212 EVO for around $30. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... If you want something more expensive, then get a Noctua NH-D14 for around $80. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Pretty much any ram that doesn't have excessively high heatsinks (like the corsair vengeance series) will fit under the heatsinks (unless you're buying a really low profile heatsink) But ya. The Ripjaw X series will fit under everything that's not a low profile heatsink.
