Hi everyone i was windering if this cooler will cover my ram slots or cause other issues

Mobo msi z87 g45 gaming
I5 4670k (i want to oc to 4.2-4.4ghz will this cooler be enough)
Case corsair 300r windowed
Ram 4x4gb corsair lp vengance
I want to replace the cooler master fans with two noctua 120mm fans

Once the two fans are on will they cause any problems like covering the ram

Also which is the BEST thermal paste to use under £10

If this cooler will not allow stable temps under 65-70c which other cooler will budget 35-40 pounds

I live in the uk (for prices or products)

Best solution

I have the smaller version (the hyper TX3 evo) and it does tend to make the nearest RAM slot to the CPU rather difficult to access (unusable if not using low profile RAM, luckily you are). However if you already have the RAM installed it won't be a problem. As for thermal paste, the fan ships with repackaged Arctic Cooling paste, which is one of the best you can get so there is no need in buying an extra.

I already have the 4 slots installed but have a stock cooler wanting to upgrade so i should be fine with this cooler if i buy it?

Also i know this is really stupid but to wipe the old thermal compound off is one of those small muffin papers fine to use?

To wipe off thermal compound you will need to get yourself some thermal paste remover (or Isopropyl alcohol if you want it cheaper). It should just dissolve the old paste with a little rubbing.
