I am going to pick up a new heat sink for my build and I am worried it will hit my GSKILL Ripjaws heat sink. I have all 4 DIM's populated (8G) The board it's self is an Crosshair III Formula.
I have been looking at several heat sinks (listed below) but I cant decide because as stated I don't know if they will clear my ram. I am hoping some of you that have experience with the coolers can help me, Thanks
Tom's Hardware has published articles about memory that include a comment about those tall heatspreaders. They are not what they are cracked up to be. Their ability to improve memory cooling is questionable. Consider them an advertising gimmick. THG has suggested that memory modules with no heatspreaders can stay just as cool. I'm guessing it might be because the cpu heatsinks pull air across the memory modules.
