Does G.Skill Ripjaws Z fits with Noctua NH-D14? And opinion about my new rig.

Hi!

My main question is:
Will this ram sticks fit under the Noctua nh-d14? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231585

I'll use pull/push method so my ram would be right under the fan.

Also can you tell me if this components are compatible with each other and everything will run smooth with OC'ing?

-Asus Maximus VI Hero Z87
-Intel 4770k
-Noctua NH-D14
-G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB 2400Mhz
-GTX 770 (buying another one later for SLI)
-Corsair HX 850w
-Western Digital Caviar Black 1000Gb
-Samsung SSD 840 Pro Series 256GB
-Enermax Fulmo Premium (case)

Please respond fast because i'm buying it next week and I don't want to make any mistakes :P.

thanks!

  1. Yes it will fit. Noctua has a compatibility list here:http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=compatibility_ram_gen&products_id=34&lng=en#DDR3_G.Skill

    The rest is all compatible also.
  2. According to the compatibility chart at Noctua, yes, it fits.
  3. Does the compatibility chart take into account that LGA 1150 CPUs sit lower?
  4. I always advice against buying RAM with large heat spreaders, they are unnecessary and get in the way.

    Ditto.
    They serve exactly the same purpose as the fins on your grandads '59 Cadillac. To look flashy.

    Lol too true. And I did't know Haswell sat lower? I haven't built a Haswell rig yet though.
