Noctua NH D-14
May 11, 2014, 7:38 PM
So as you all know, the Noctua Nh D-14 is a pretty big fan. The ram I want to get is the G.Skill Ares Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory. Is this too tall and will it interfere with the Noctua?
Also, this ^ is my gaming build. Please let me know if there are any incompatibilities. Also what are some cooler cases that still work really well for the same price as the one I have?
Thank you everyone!!

PartPicker should tell you. You've got a Phantek cooler in it. The cooler spec should tell you if it requires low profile ram. And the case spec should tell you if the cooler will fit.
You don't need 16gb ram for gaming. 8 is more than OK.

Noctua NH-D14 can fit with any G.Skill RAM. There will be plenty of clearance with G.Skill Ares series.
