Asus m5a97 r2.0

My friend is going to be purchasing a asus m5a97 r2.0 motherboard soon and I have heard from people that the ram slot is too close to fit a cooler like a cooler master hyper 212 evo. He is using g-skills ripjaws x and I was wondering if anyone who has had experience with this board could tell me if it would possibly fit. Also he only has 2 ram modules. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  1. The tall heat spreader may hit the fan on the first memory slot. The motherboard supports two memory modules inserted in either the blue or black slots as one pair of Dual-channel memory configuration.

    Ok so if he puts them into the first channel (the blue one) he should be fine? Or is there another ram that would work better?

    Yes, the blue slots will be be fine. I think it also may be possible to position the fan up higher if you use the first black slot.
