Im just wondering if 4 sticks of the vengance pro ram will fit with the cooler masters hyper 212 evo on the Asrock z77 extreme4 motherboard...Im not sure about its hight and if it will fit in all 4 slots without touching the heatsink

Also If anyone has the z77 extreme4 with silver vengance pro series ram please tell me if it looks sexy... there is no gold 4x4gb >.>

All the Vengeance RAM looks sexy, especially the red Vengeance Pro. I know 3 sticks will fit and I'm fairly sure 4 will fit too. Don't take my word for it though, but I had the 212 EVO, and it's pretty welcoming for RAM sticks.

All will fit fine, the fans on the EVO are height adjustable, with no performance hit Have GSkill Tridents sitting under myine on my Z77 and will Sat on a Haswell

Thx guys for that awesome fast reply. It was really helpful xD One more quick question... Will the vengance pro ram preform well with the i5 3570k. Alot of people are calling it overclocking ram but im not intending to over clock my cpu really high ... Maybe just 4.0 or 4.2ghz

It's a great match, I'm pretty sure what people mean is that you should overclock RAM speed, which can be done, and should be done, 2133Mhz and 1866Mhz is what you should aim at, it really doesn't get any hotter, and if you configure a push fan on top of the ram from your EVO, some of the air will help cool the RAM.

I think you have the answer. The memory will fit and the cooler can be adjusted I believe so everything is good. But i'd suggest go with 2 x 8GB modules rather 4 x 4GB for 16GB of memory. 4 x 4GB is understandable if you have a X79 Chipset motherboard which supports Quad Channel memory architecture but Z77 use only Dual Channel. If you go with 4 x 4GB you will run the memory with more stress and you will be still running 'em in Dual channel mode, hence, IMO going with 2 x8GB is the better of the two unless you already have the memory with you.!! Good luck!!

Legohouse is correct a 2x8GB set would be better, extremely small gain in performance, and less stress on the MC (memory controller)
