I have a 212+, it depends on the ram you buy. Any with tall heatsinks won't work. And my board is a full size ATX and the fan still hangs over the RAM sticks. Lucky for me my ramsinks are short so I didn't have any issues. I did have issues with my northbridge cooler and had to "mod" it to fit the 212+. Buy short ram sticks, and a board with a low profile NB sink.
