My Friend gave me his xigmatek dark knight but it blocks 2 of my memory slots does anyone know of any brackets that i can use so i can use this heatsink ive looked at alot of places but cant find them anywhere. I was also looking to get the Scythe Katana 3 if i couldnt get the Xigmatek one to work but wasnt sure if that was also blocking any of the ram slots.
i have a Antec 300 case and IGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P MOBO
Yeah, if your RAM is short enough, there might be enough clearance to install the RAM sticks before the heatsink. Also, it looks as if Xigmatek made an adapter (link) to mount the cooler vertically, it's just a matter of finding where to buy it.
I suppose that you mean "yes", so, Do you try install the cooler in both forms?, because like I see the RAM have the standard size and the cooler is very similar to my Hyper 212+ and I had not problems with the installation.
If the memory still doesn't fit, then you definitely need to mount it vertically somehow. Since the item in the link I posted earlier is hard to find (I only found on Australian websites), it's not really an option. From searching around, these two have been mentioned to be working for similar Xigmatek coolers:
