Hi all, I've just received my Hyper 212 Evo, knowing that either I'd need to replace my memory with low-profile, or slide the fan up on the heatsink a bit to accomodate my current RAM. My question is this- With this mobo, why is it not recommended to use DIMM slots A2 and B2? Is there any harm in trying it? I'd rather install this cooler correctly. Thanks so much.

Never heard that, and it's not a problem, I've run a number od sets on my Hero in 2-4, and this evening, why I wasn't in earlier, my son just built a new Haswell on the Hero, we experimented with a number of 16GB sets in both 1-3 and 2-4 with no problems ranging from 1866-2400, finally taliked him into a 32GB set of Tridents in 2133 - great mobo shouldn't have any problems with either set of slots

Thanks for the input! In the manual, A2/B2 isn't listed as a compatible memory configuration. That's why I was asking.

No problem, I always try a variety of combos and check whatever DRAM I have available when I get my hands on a mobo - sort of what tonight was, I was running my son on how I build and check things, he runs IT operation for the Air Force
