Corsair Vengeance w/ Hyper 212 EVO & Maximus Hero MoBo
Will the standard height Corsair Vengeance modules fit using a CM Hyper 212 EVO and Maximus Hero? I know they made Low Profile modules because some coolers go over the RAM slots.
I have not yet bought my components and wondering if the standard ones will fit as they appear to be cheaper than their LP counterparts (not by much but im on a budget). If it's relevant I'll be using a Corsair Carbide 400R case.
Thanks in advance.

The mount for the fan allows you mount the fan higher on the heat sink for clearance, if needed.
I had soem RAM with rather tall heat sinks and was able to clear it by mounting a1/4"-1/2" higher on the heat sink.
Of course, you need to have a little clearance between the top of the heat sink and the case to allow for the fan-shift.
Also if you only have 2 modules you can put them in slots 2 and 4 instead of 1 and 3 and there should be no clearance problems.
