I'm preparing for my first time CPU overclock and need advice.
The CPU to be overclocked is an i7 860 and have been told it has potential.
On advice from the good folks at Tom's Hardware I will most likely get the CoolerMaster Hyper 612 PWM to keep my CPU cool while I attempt to boost the MHz.
The only thing keeping me from ordering this part is the issue of my RAM possibly obstructing the fan on the cooler which as I have gathered so far has an overhang of sorts.
My 4 ram slots are all filled each with 4GB Princeton "DDR3-SDRAM PC3-10700 (667MHz) - [DDR3-1333]" (as it reads in Pc Wizard 2010).
I have attempted to check the dimensions of all of the above in my case to make sure it will fit ok but as a total noob im a bit confused how they all line up.
Just wondering if anyone has a similar setup who can tell me if it will work, even a general nudge in the right direction would be helpful. From what I have read so far this particular cooler should be fine in most systems but I thought I should check with the experts before I order.
