I am planning a new build and I think I finally narrowed down everything. However, the RAM I am going to be using has a very tall heatsink so I was wondering if it will interfere/prevent me from using an aftermarket CPU cooler. I'll list all the parts of my build first:
First of all, just want to make sure that the Hyper 212 will fit on this motherboard while allowing me to use the Trident sticks?
And second, anyone have any opinions or suggestions on this build? I want to overclock the 940 to as high as I can without having to buy a more expensive cooler and while downclocking the Trident sticks to 6-8-6-18 CL6 @ 1600. Thanks!
(By the way, I know the 940 is needlessly expensive compared to the 920/930, I got it for much cheaper then retail).
I'll have to do more research on the games I'm going to playing the most and see if those in particular support it, but either way power requirements and heat should be similar. The main issue was just making sure I can use the Hyper and RAM with a tall heatsink so it looks like I'm good to go. Thanks for the help!
