I'm currently looking into building a new computer but i have a few questions. i plan on going with the 2500k because everyone seems to love it and i was suggested the P8P67 pro. I love its UEFI but im worried that if i put a cooler master hyper 212+ on my 2500k the ram slots will be blocked. so does anyone know if the hyper 212+ does or does not block the ram slots. also on the that topic I'm planning on G.skill ripjaws X, yes or no? and last question is i dont fully understand dual channel ram, does it matter which two slots i put the ram in to get dual channel?

You'll be fine with the Cooler Master RR-B10-212P-G1 Hyper 212 Plus and the G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL on the ASUS P8P67 PRO. You wouldn't be the first to use this combination of components.

Yes it does matter which two memory sockets you place the two DIMMs in.

When using only two DIMMs they should be inserted into the two blue memory sockets on the ASUS P8P67 PRO so that they will operate in dual channel mode.

The two blue memory sockets are located at the end of the memory bus and filling these sockets first ensures that the bus is properly terminated and the digital signal reflection on the bus is minimized.
