Hey all :) 

Taking into account the following facts...

- I'm using 1st and 3rd memory slots.
- The Antec 300 is basically 20cm (8.1') wide. (which should allow for 18cm minimum, if not a little more room for a CPU cooler)
-Case: Antec 300
-Mobo: Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3R
-CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U12P SE2

Firstly, I foresee myself having 'ample' space to fit the 160mm cooler into the 205mm case, it is near impossible not to considering the 45mm difference. I don't think there's any question about this, but if there's something you can point out then please do so :p 

Secondly, my only realistic doubt is how close the cooler will come to touching my ram in the 3rd slot, I think it will be fine... BUT, I thought it best to ask some others with experience on the topic, whether you have dealt with the exact same setup in the past or if you're knowledgeable about the topic, I'd like to hear what you have to say ;) 

Lastly, cheers for reading/replying! :D

It will work fine with standard memory modules.

The problem usually occurs with memory modules that have those extra tall heatspreaders that look like combs.

That's what I like to hear, cheers :) 

If there's anything else significant that someone can add I'm all ears... A similar set-up would be most helpful/reassuring.
