Cooler Master Haf 912 plus + Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme + Memory Problem

hello
i was wondering if a Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme would fit in my setup
case is a haf 912 plus , cpu i5 3570k gpu gtx 670 oc

here is a picture of my setup (ignore potato camera phone )


i am worried that if i get the Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme cooler my ram will not fit in anymore

i am thinking of maybe putting the cooler in a down up position so the air glow goes through the opening the case has on top but even then i am not sure if my memory will still fit

Does anyone have a similar setup that can tell me 100% for sure the cooler and memory will fit in this case ?


P.S What do you guys think i should OC my cpu when and if i buy the cooler ? (yes i know that no one cpu will oc the same but say do i have a chance to oc it to 4.3 4.4 4.5 ? )

    i think you might be good to go from this review on amazon:
    "I got my 3770K stable at 4.8Ghz with this cooler at temps in the 70C range. This cooler can beat a Noctua and rivals mid to low-end water coolers. There's not much left to say other than make sure you got room in your case because it's huge. If you're running a Z77, memory sticks with really tall heat spreaders are not a problem because you can mount the second fan on the opposite side of the dimm slots. If you got short heat spreaders you can actually run triple fans with this cooler. I used the new Gelid extreme thermal compound which I think makes a difference. When the new fans on the SilverArrow Extreme become available (TY-143), I will drop some in to see how much of a difference they make.

  2. can't see ya RAM but as long as it's low profile will be no issue either way

    Prolimatech and Thermalright told me that their coolers run 2-3 C cooler with fans blowing to rear of case.....however, in one instance, due to a fit issue, (not with RAM, but w/ side intake fan) I have rotated it as you plan.

    i have Corsair 2x4GB DDR3 1600MHz rev A and its really close to the cpu on the right
    so then it will even fit if i put the coolers from left to right ? or only if i put one left one middle ?
    or is it better to put them down up and put one in the middle and one up ?
  4. Should be OK,, the Tridents would be a good DRAM choice as the top fin is easily removable
  5. so then 100% it will work and the ram will fit in ?
    also what would be the best air flow then left to right or down to up ?
  6. Flowing towards the rear of the case where the exhaust fan is
