CM Hyper 212+ help

So the stock AMD fan that came with my thuban X6 1090T BE is rather faulty since it randomly makes rattling sounds now. I heard the hyper 212+ was a low priced and amazing fan but what worries me is it fitting. My mobo isn't a full ATX board (at least newegg doesn't list it as one) and I have 2 sticks of ripjaws that have those little teeth-like heat sinks. Will it fit?

  1. ^ I second his opinion, it'll fit, with little clearance.
  2. Yep! that's all compatible guys have 212+'s in Rosewill Challengers which are 7.48" wide.
  3. What specific Ripjaws model do you have?

    CM Hyper 212+ has 37mm from contact base to fan, while the Ripjaws are 40mm at the tallest point (left and right sides), the smaller ones (in between) are 38mm tall.

  4. I've got Ripjaws RAM and a Hyper 212+ heatsink and the RAM fits, although my motherboard is different.
  5. It will work i have this ram kit with the 212+ no problem.
    Had it on a Giggy H55M and now a MSI P55A same ram and 212+

    Personally, I don't think that Ripjaws + Hyper 212+ fit in that mobo.

    Why?

    That's a Hyper 212+ with low profile RAM on a Gigabyte 890FXA-UD5. The space between the socket and RAM slot in the ASUS mobo is the same that in Gigabyte mobo.

    The socket is definitely close to the dimms.I see your point pertaining to AMD.
    My point of reference was Intel.
    Worse case scenario the fan can slide up a few mm.
    Good info as always!

    Yeah, Intel always has more space between socket and RAM slots.

    In that case slide up or use the RAM in 3rd and 4th slots and good options.
  9. Decided to go with the Xigmatek Loki since I didn't want to deal with the size issue. Thanks for the help guys!
