CM V6GT w/ ASRock 990FX AM3+ Mobo (Clearance Issue)

Last response: in Overclocking

I was wondering if anyone had tried the combination of the Cooler Master V6GT (RR-V6GT-22PK-R1​) in conjunction with the ASRock 990FX PROFESSIONAL AM3+ (Fatal1ty) motherboard? I'm wanting to utilize both of these pieces for my next build along with Corsair Vengeance (16GB 4x4) RAM.

I should have enough vertical clearance in regards to the case I'm using (Full Tower Antec Dark Fleet DF-85), but I am a bit concerned with the clearance of the motherboard's heatsinks along with the placement of the memory modules; especially considering the high profile of the Corsair Vengeance RAM.

So in sum, has anyone at least used the CM V6GT/ASRock 990FX in combination? If someone used Corsair Vengeance RAM as well then that would be a bonus. I'm just looking to avoid any build errors before hand and with the specs that are given it is very difficult to determine the clearances in this situation.

I appreciate whatever information anyone can provide.

Thank you, I found these soon after posting this so thanks for responding.

Now, as long as the heatsinks on the board don't rise too high then I'm in good shape!
