RAM too tall? Will it fit?

Hello everyone!

I was thinking of getting a Asus ROG Maximus VI Formula and a big ass air cooler like a Noctua NH-D14 or similar.

But I'm worried about the RAM.

How much space will there be for the RAM? Most RAM I see are tall and don't seem to fit.

  1. most cpu coolers are designed for high performance systems so that they have in mind that RAM will also be big in size like corsair vengence ... i don't think so that there is any problem with that . . it will fit

    HERE is a memory compatibility list compiled by Noctua. Check your RAM before you buy. I have the NH D14 + Crucial Ballistix Tactical LP (Low Profile) RAM and I have lots of clearance.

    BTW, most tall RAM heat spreaders are just for looks and don't really add to the performance of the RAM.

  4. What kind of OC will be thinking of? If planning to only head up to 4.4-4.5 could save some money off the Noctua and go with the Hyper 212 EVO, which can accomodate even the tallest heatsinks on DRAM, the fan(s) of the EVO are height adjustable ;)
