I'm upgrading and have an ASUS P8z68 v-Pro, I7-2600K, and 16 GB of Corsair Vengeance.
I don't think I will OC to the max at all. I have been reading about clearance issues with
this Mobo and the high profile RAM. I have not ordered a heatsink yet but would rather install
it now than later while the mobo is out of the case.
Has anyone out there successfully installed all 4 chips on this set-up with a non stock heat sink?
If not, I may send the RAM back for something lower profile.
Thanks for the reply and the pic. I looked up the specs on that and it shows it as 131MM (5 inches) wide which would put it into or over the 1st RAM slot. Does it sit above it? If so, that would be ideal.
