With the Zalman installed l cannot put the ripjaws x in slot #1. Can the cooler fan be in the up position. l am using an Asus M5A87 with 965 black edition with G.Skill Ripjaws X (F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL)and Zalman CNPS10X Performa. How can l make this work? Thanks for your help.

Try sliding the fan up a bit,if that doesn't clear the ram, you can always mount the fan on the other side and pull.

if it uses the amd clasp then you can only put it on 1 way in real terms and thats fan at the bottom blowing up. zalman may do a mount that will let you turn the cooler on its side but you will have to get in touch with em for that info.

Does ya RAM have those toothy heat sinks ? Might try ones w/o those buggers which these days are only there for "looks". Corsair Vengeance LP models work just about all the time.

If l slide the fan up a bit it might not stay attached. I will try; also you are right about putting the fan on the other side. Lastly buy low profile ram. Thanks.
