Solved Hyper 212 EVO i7-3770K room & RAM clearance Tags: Overclocking Cooler Master Intel i7 Evo RAM Cooling Last response: July 3, 2013 10:19 PM in Overclocking Share ryuh90 July 3, 2013 4:07:20 PM I currently have a Zalman CNPS5X Performa cooling my i7, but the problem is, when I overclock the processor, it becomes extremely hot(90 C+). I was planning on buying a Hyper 212 EVO due to the good things I've heard about it, but I don't know if I have room in my case(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) or if I have enough headroom to keep all 4 of my ram chips(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) installed. I put some pictures of my current setup and cooler if it helps at all.(http://imgur.com/8oTGn80,W5hvYut,RLMeiCW#0). Really it's the size of that Hyper 212 Fan that is worrying me.

According to CMs homepage, the evo 212 is 120 x 80 x 159 mm. So you're looking good there. As for your ram, can't guarantee it, but I know the fan can be slid up higher on the heatsink to accommodate larger ram.

How much of an effect on cooling performance will moving the fan higher on the heatsink have? m 0 l Related resources Hyper 212 EVO on a micro-atx - ram clearance? - Forum RAM Clearance with Hyper 212 EVO - Forum CM Hyper 212 evo Ram clearance - Forum Hyper 212 EVO RAM Clearance - Forum CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO RAM Clearance? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

In my case, the fan JUST comes to the ram. If the fan came 1mm more to the right, I'd have to lift my fan about 2mm to fit.
