Hi everybody.

I read some reviews about the awesome Zalman CNPS12X CPU Cooler that I'm planning to buy that it doesn't fit properly in all motherboards and memory sticks, so I'm going to ask any of you if you ever tried this setup and worked or a similar setup with this cooler.

Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe
Corsair 4x4 memory sticks

Did the cooler fit inside that setup? Did you have to flip it over or switch the fans?

Thanks in advance.

It is NOT compatible. I just tried installing it on the P8Z77-V Deluxe, turns out it's blocking the first ram slot DIMM_A1.

The box clearly states that this fan is compatible with these intel sockets: 2011/1366/1156/1155/775

Huge fail by Zalman. Very disappointed.
