Will G-Skill Ripjaws X Memory fit under 212 EVO?

I've been wanting to build a PC recently and I've rounded up a assortment of parts I'd like to use for my build. I was wondering if my (4x4) G-Skill Ripjaws X RAM would fit under my Cooler Master 212 EVO? I'm using the ASUS Maximus VI Hero LGA 1150 motherboard. Thanks!

    Hi swishgumbo
    there is a fair chance you will have trouble with the first ram slot with the ripjaws x

    for a cooler that will allow you to overclock with no issues with your ram

    its only 1mm taller than the evo and you will get much higher overclocks

  2. The G-skill Ripjaws X will fit under your Cooler Master 212 Evo but I'm wondering why you're using a 4x4 configuration when 2x8 configuration has future expandability and is cheaper.
  3. Yes, no problem at all, the RipJaws X series can fit well under the Cooler Master 212 EVO.
  4. It will fit, but you will have to raise the fan attached to the cooler by 1/4 to 1/2 an inch. Luckily, the 212 EVO's fan mounting setup allows you to mount the fans at any height on the cooler that you want.

    I know this first hand as I have that ram and that cooler, and an asus motherboard.
