Will these ram fit with cm hyper 212 evo on the sabertooth z77 mobo ? I would like to use these ram http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... for Slot 1 & 3 cause I heard it gives better performance than 2 & 4.

Slot 2 and 4 is the correct slot! That is the correct configuration.

oh i see. i heard somewhere on the forum reason that 1 & 3 are better because its physically closer to the mobo cpu or something like that lol. but i guess in this case with sabertooth z77 2 & 4 is the way to go. Thank you for your input!

Every Asus board that I know of (mine included) recommends slots 2 and 4 (A2 and B2) when you're only using two modules. Don't know WHY that is, but I'm not gonna argue with it.

that's even better no need to worry about the HSF touching the ram or clearance issues :)  no need to buy low profile rams and save a couple bucks
