Motherboard = ASUS P7P55D-E Pro LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM = G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HSF = Cooler Master V8 CPU Fan - Socket 1366/775/AM2/AM2+,1156, AM3 120mm Fan, Modular Aluminum Fins
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

Case = Antec Nine Hundred Two Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Three Questions.

1) Will the HSF be blocking the RAM or will i be able to install the ram first with no problems?

2) Will the HSF fit inside my Antec 902 case?

3) Is Tigerdirect reliable? (Price was $10 cheaper than Newegg)

It shouldn't block any thing so you should be fine in that respect as for Tigerdirect they are decent just like Newegg.

The Cooler Master V8 isn't as obtrusive as you think. It doesn't block ram at all, even with big heat spreaders. I can open up my case and easily remove and place back all my 3 ram sticks without touching my V8.

Hi.

1- The CM V8 have 38.2mm for the RAM if the RAM is more taller u could have problems.
2- Here are the specifications of both case and cooler:

Antec 902: 493 (H) x 218cm (W) x 472cm (D)
CM V8: 120 x 128 x 161.1mm

So, fit without problems in the case

3- Yeah, is one of the best places for buy.

Does anyone know the dimmensions of the particular RAM?
They look taller than most, i just want to make sure it'll fit.

Not much, the max that I can find was that are one quarter inch more taller that the normal size.

If u bear in mind that my current RAM fit without problems with the Hyper 212+ that is more smaller that the V8 I think that the Ripjaws can fit without problems.
