TPC 812 on Azrock extreme6

Hi.

I was planning to install TPC 812 on my Desktop. But found that its huge and even may block first 2 of my ram slots. Is it worth losing that slots. I am not a heavy overclocker. Will Hyper 212 EVO will suit my needs? Please help me. Thanks

  1. Install ram first, then install cooler. Problem solved.
  2. the thing is I am using Gskill Ripjaws X, which has a heat sink which increases its height. So it will be a problem for me.
  3. how many fans are on this CPU heatsink?

    No, install ram first. Then put install the cooler.

    The fans will be over the ram, but you'll still have your modules installed.

    It has one fan which comes on top of the ram slots. Actually I ordered it through ebay. But the guy hasn't shipped it yet. So planning to change it to 2 Hyper 212 evo for me and my friend
  7. No this is what you do. Take the fan and mount it on the opposite side of the heatsink. So that you can clearly install your ram and the fan stays on that side
  8. But that will cause a problem since the fan was supposed to take air in. Connecting it on the other side, the fan has to be connected with the air flowing outside, since it comes parallel to the back panel fan of the cabinet. will then i get a proper cooling for the heatsink?
  9. Then connect it back to the other side....is it that difficult to understand?

    its called dismounting the fan from the heatsink and turning it around in the pull direction.. then remount it to the heat sink

    Listen man, you can't take a fan and mount it over a 2inch tall heatsink, idc what high end air cooler it is. Unless you remove the fan, it won't work...
  12. Yes, yes you can. :)

    This is very odd. I have a Asus P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3 with Ripjaws X and an TPC 812 and the fan fits over the RAM fine (just fits though).

    If you look closely at the images in the link you posted, the fan is positioned lower with respect to the bottom 812 fin on the high profile RAM than with the low profile - something is fishy there.
  14. i went for EVO 212 and it fits fine. and i am getting around 40-42 degree on 4 ghz. This is what i wanted and I am sure i did not make a bad decision.
  15. good, as long as the client is happy! If you still have some questions let us know

    It does just as well or better than the 812. Good choice.
