Will this fit the Hyper 212 EVO without covering the 2nd or 4th RAM slot?

Also, will it support all of the following parts:
GSkill Ripjaws X Series 8gb (2x4gb) 1600.
Sapphire Radeon 7850 OC Edition
Seasonic 80Plus Power Supply M12II 620 BRONZE
Intel Core i5 3570K Processor 3.4 4 BX80637I53570K
Seagate SV35 500 GB 7200RPM SATA 6-Gb/s NCQ 32MB Cache


Thanks in advance.

Good looking build.

The hyper212 is not a very deep cooler. I think it will fit if you populate the 2 & 4 ram slots.

But, why not buy the same G.skil ram in low profile form? It costs no more, performs the same, and avoids the issue.
Really, 1.5v ram does not need any heat spreaders at all.

If pushed, you could always mount the fan as a pull fan on the opposite side from the traditional push orientation.

There was a $10 sale on the X Jaws, I would have had to of gotten the 1333 version.

And what do you mean pull fan?

Normally, a cpu cooler fan is mounted so that the airflow is pushed from the fan into the cooler and out the back towards the case rear air exit fan.

It is almost equally good to mount the fan on the back side of the cooler so that the air is drawn in through the cooler first, then through the fan and out the back.
