Hey guys, i am going to be building a new pc in about a months time and i am a little stuck if my ram will fit into my motherboard with my specific cooler.

Im using an asus z87-pro motherboard
and a cooler master hyper TX3 EVO heatsink =8591
and G.Skill Sniper 8G Kit(4Gx2) DDR3 1600 for ram.

please respond if you think this will all fit together nicely.

I don't think that will be a problem,that ram isn't that high and the tx 3 isn't such a big cooler anyway.

Dear SSB,

The Gskill snipers appear to be slightly over 41mm. The TX3 only has 36.4mm of clearance underneath the fan. You would need to install your RAM in slots 2 & 4 so that it does not interfere with the fan.

Gskill Snipers

Please let me know if you have any more questions.

From what i can find out is that the hyper tx3 evo doesn't come even close to a ram slot when mounted.You should know looking at that you're a "Official Cooler Master Representative".
I looked even on the cooler master site you linked and in the picture where it is placed in the system you can see it clearly.
