Hi, I'm fairly new to the high-end air cooling products. I need some help on how to integrate the HSF unit to my LGA 1366 motherboard. Please help me out with these questions...

1. Will the Phanteks PH-TC14PE collide with my Patriot Sector 7 RAM?

2. How exactly should I apply the PH-NDC thermal compound to the CPU? I've worked many times with HSF units and applying thermal paste, but this is the first time I've worked with high-performance air cooling parts. I want to finish the integration of the HSF in a precise manner, so help me out here!

The ram may not fit if your running 4 modules.There is very little clearance with this cooler.I have one on my Sabertooth 990fx.

So the Patriot Sector 7 RAM will, or won't fit? I'm running 3 modules (triple-channel LGA 1366). Thanks for the help!

Ah, so the RAM has got to be less than 40MM tall... Right? Just making sure I read the diagram correctly lol.
