Hi everyone,

I'm building a Crossfire setup using 2x Sapphire Radeon HD 6870's, Core i7 2600K, Antec Nine Hundred Two case.

I currently have 4x 4GB G.Skill Ripjaw X Series I'm regretting buying these as they are very tall ! :pfff: 

I'm thinking to purchase either the ASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3 or the ASUS P8P67 PRO (REV 3.1).

Can anyone recommend a good CPU cooler that will fit if I still wanted to use all 4 RAM slots?

Thanks so much!

A 212+ should work fine,you'll have to slide the fan up to clear the closest dimm.
Focus your selection to narrow heatsinks(width) = most room for ram..
This cooler is even thinner then the 212+(80mm)
XIGMATEK Gaia SD1283(50mm)
