I am looking to take my Phenom II x4 to 4ghz. I have 2 questions is this cpu cooler good enough for the job, and will this block the ram slots on my motherboard. I have really tall ram (OCZ Reaper), and I do not want to have too take out 4gb of ram to make it fit.

More about : m4a89td pro usb3 am3 thermaltake frio

If you are planning to buy the frio, then i would recommend you look at better ones around the same price range like tunq tower 120 extreme or for a few $ more maybe venomous X or megahalems or NH D14 or silver arrow... Frio is a good cooler but noisy (even at mid speeds) and doesn't cool like the others i have mentioned and i have never heard nor seen anybody clocking 4Ghz using it...

Edit - forgot bout your memory heatsink... the tuniq tower has the best ground clearance to its first heatsink fin...
