Hello.
I am about to order all of my computer parts soon, and I just want to be certain everything will fit with the hyper 212 evo cooler. I am concerned about the motherboard and case and ram all fitting with this huge cpu cooler. This is on my 2500k. Experience with 2 of these fitting, or all 3, with the hyper212 would be very appreciated.

Case:
Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Motherboard:
ASRock Z68 PRO3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68

Ram:
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile

Ps: Picking low profile ram just so it fits better... does ram overheat if it doesn't have the stupid big head spreaders?

It will work. I just built a rig with with some Rip Jaws 1600 with the heat sinks and had no problem clearing the HSF. And a Hyper 212+

I've got asrock z68, 212+, ripjaws x, antec 300 and still have about an inch of clearance from the heatsink to the case. The 300 is plenty big for even the largest of heatsinks.

Ram spreaders are actually unnecessary at 1.5v, it's just for looks.

Though I would actually recommend the extreme3 gen 3 as it's hardly more for another pcie slot, better vrm as well as other features.

Yeah, I'l get the extreme3 then.. thought the only difference between the boards was the extra card slot (dont plan on sli), but if its got a better vrm then its probably worth it for overclocking.
