I need to make a decision probably within the next 6 hours whether or not I'm buying this MoBo for my new computer. Here's the issue I was hoping someone could clear up for me.

I'm going to have a Megahalems w/ 2 Scythe S-Flex fans and I was wondering if I would run into issues trying to fit 4 sticks of Mushkin Blackline. I've seen some pictures with heatstinks and it seems to get pretty close.

The heat spreader on the Mushkin Blackline doesn't raise up much over the PCB of the RAM itself.

I also calculated the width of the cooler plus fan against the space between the CPU and first RAM slot. It will be tight but it does fit.
