1- The Vengeance are new, but the CL aren't good, go with G.Skill Ripjaws or Ripjwas X
2- I can't understand why you spend $200 in a case and only $150 in your CPU.
Thanks saint ,
1. I already have the Vengeance cant ship it back , will buy another .
2. Well , I wanted to buy a sandy bridge rig only to find in the next day about the chipset problem , so I thought I’d buy what I wanted for sandy bridge minus the cpu+motherboard , and the i3 is a cheap alternative untill Intel fixes the motherboards . ( i3 +GA board will be in a HTPC after i buy SB)
Anyway , will the Hyper 212+ fit ? with the RAM and 560 ?
With the GPU can fit without problems, the problem is the RAM. The Hyper 212+ only can fit 37mm RAM (low profile RAM) and the Ripjaws and Vengeance are 40mm at the tallest point (left and right sides), the smaller ones (in between) are 38mm tall.

You should be aware that tests have shown in just about all instances, removing those big tall RAM heatsinks has at best no effect on RAM cooling or performance. In many instances they actually have a negative effect. One exception I have seen is the heat sinks made by Ascent and appearing on some Mushkin Redline modules but those are low profile.
I have never been a fan of what I have called "faux water coolers" like the Corsair H50 (made by Asetek) but the new Antec Kuhler (also made by Asetek) is starting to change my mind given current reviews, and it certainly avoids the fit issues.
