I have committed to my new build by buying a Asus Rampage III Extreme (actually wanted the Rampage II Extreme but the PCIe slots where too close together for my liking), an i7 930 (no i920's available) & a Prolimatech Megahalems.
The memory I would like to go for is the OCZ Reaper 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 12800C6 (1600MHz) Tri-Channel (OCZ3RPR1600C6LV6GK) featured here:
What I would like to know is, is there enough space for memory of that height on the R3E when the Prolimatech Megahalems are fitted with 2x 25mmx120mm fans in a Push/Pull configuration?
I have found what I believe to be a life size pic of the R3E here: & have used the Prolimatech Megahalems dimensions (+25-30mm to account for the fan & fan clip nearest to the memory slots) to see whether there is space. There certainly seems to be, I know the R3E is longer than a standard MB by about an inch too but I would really like to hear from someone who has fitted the Prolimatech Megahalems to the R3E or at least see some pics of it fitted before I buy the memory.
Any help is much appreciated

Have you tried this setup yet? I was looking into using these exact parts as well when I stumbled upon this post. I would greatly appreciate your experiences in fitting these parts together.
