Hello

I have recently got a new case which is full tower so case wise space is fine.

I have ASUS P877Z-V LX motherboard and I'm running Arctic freezer 13 cooler at the moment.
This cooler is quite small, but the fan is very low. I am running 4x4gb DDR3 high profile RAM



Now, I intend to overclock, but no matter how I measure, I can't seem to get proper dimensions.
(I've never built a rig - this was my first time [building so to speak] transferring all components from one case to another.

If anyone could recommend a cpu cooler which would fit the motherboard WITHOUT affecting the RAM? Are there any good coolers for OC with this setup? or will I have to either get low profile RAM for a good cpu cooler, or my only option is the h100?


Thank you for your time.

Best solution

H100i would be the safe bet. Depending on the mobo, some people can get away with a Hyper 212 EVO by sliding the fan up...I've also seen this cooler can be good for high profile RAM: http://www.amazon.com/Thermal-right-archon-armor-copper... But at that price, I'd just get the H100i, especially if you wanna OC quite a bit.
