Hi guys, does anyone know if a Thermaltake Frio cpu cooler will fit into a CM Storm Enforcer Case?

And also if it will cover any RAM slots on the z77 Sabertooth, I am planning on using Corsair Vengeance or Gskill Ripjaws X Memory

Just checking so i know whether to buy 4x4 or 2x8 RAM sticks.

Thanks in advance!

4x4 or 8x2?

8x2 leaves u the room to upgrade to 32GB later : )

Also, using 2 sticks minimizes the chance that one will go bad vs 4 sticks.

With no problem, I have it in Antec P180 and the FRIO and Storm Enforcer is even 1inch wider than Antec.

100% sure it will fit.

I recommend CORSAIR Vengeance 99% of the time, quality RAM and low profile with XMP profile.
And if u will get an aftermarket CPU cooler, low profile is the worry free remedy with perfect fit with any large cooler.
CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

Vengeance Low Profile heat spreaders have a reduced height of 1.03" (26.25mm). They're designed for high-performance systems with extra-large CPU coolers, small form factor system builds, or any other space-constrained application where standard Vengeance memory might not fit.
