CPU Heatsink Compatability/Fit on ASUS Crosshair V Formula Z / Memory slots
I am looking for a CPU heatsink for my ASUS Crosshair V Formula Z board. I have found conflicting information on if the BeQuiet Dark Rock Pro 3 or the Thermalright Archon SB-E X2 heatsinks will interfere with the memory slots.
I am using G.Skill Trident X series ram. The sticks of ram have heat spreaders that are removable, but are still not "low profile".
Would the RAM I have interfere with the installation of either of the two above mentioned heatsinks?
Are there any other options?
I am looking for the following in a heatsink: - Price is not an issue - No water cooled solutions - Aesthetics dont matter - Prefer quieter solutions (hole reason I am undertaking this upgrade) - must fit ASUS Crosshair V Formula Z with G.Skill Trident X ram
