Closed New build: Will my heatsink fit? Tags: Power Supplies Heatsinks Mega New Build Components Last response: February 5, 2011 10:14 AM in Components Share rwlomas January 29, 2011 2:14:55 AM Hi, I am new to Tomshardware and I'm building my first custom PC. Firstly, this a great site full of quality reviews and articles, thanks Tomshardware. My first question for the forums was: Will my heatsink fit in my case? I'm planning to use a Lian Li PC-7FNWX With a ASUS P8P67 PRO Motherboard Using a Prolimatech Mega Shadow Deluxe CPU Cooler Also if you have any comments on using the Prolimatech Mega Shadow Vs the Megahalems or even the Super Mega, please feel free. Many thanks, Rohan More about : build heatsink fit d1rtyju1c3 January 29, 2011 2:51:04 AM Yes it will fit the only thing you will have to watch out for is the height of the heatspreaders on the memory. I have the Megahalems and gskill ripjaws and it fits great with both fans installed. From what I have read they all perform the same.

I was planning to use the Kingston T1 Series (KHX2133C9AD3T1FK4/8GX) They do look a bit high, but they don't seem to have the specs anywhere.. does anyone know if these will slot in with the Megashadow?

You might be able to get away with them in the 2nd and 4th slot or you could just use one fan.

As already pointed out GSkills Ripjaws and also Mushkin Black/Red line are 41mm and 40mm respectively.
