Hi and welcome to Tom's froum.

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 :D  , 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 ?

Good reasons.

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.

What if I install it vertically , so it blows the hot air to the rear fan instead of the top 120mm fan on the HAF X , like this :









but I think with my micro motherboard there wont be enough space for the GPU , right ??

The cooler always should be installed and show the picture for get best performance. If you change the orientation the problem will not be your RAM, will be the GPU.

Thought so :/  , but it will be OK with the bigger sandy bridge motherboards .


Thanks saint for your help .

Awwwwww :(  .


I have seen some core i3 overclocked to 4GHz ON stock cooling , will this be better than stock (temp wise ) ?

Its just 30 dollars , i dont feel like buying a better cooler for the core i3 .

I'm not sure that stock cooler can be enough for overclock at 4GHz. $30 for a cooler is a good budget, even the Hyper 212+ is one of the best cooler for price/performance.

I think i saw some core i3 4GHz on stock , I think it was on anandtech .


Would anyone be so kind to name good budget coolers that fit with my mobo and RAM ?!?

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.

Removing the fins could damage the RAM itself , I am not confident enough to do it :D  .

And this cooler is much better than the H70 , will keep an eye on it when upgrading to SB , but definitely not on a core i3 .

Just too much :D  .

Oh , forgot to say thanks JackNaylorPE .
