Hey people on tom's hardware!
I have a small problem. I would like a new cooler for my cpu (still running stock) and I wont it to be a cooler master hyper 212 plus. Now i am unsure if there will be enought space for my RAM, and if it will even fit in my case.
I'm running a Gigabyte uATX board with the 212 and monster-sized RAM, and its working well so far. You have to turn the heatsink sideways to get it to fit, unfortunately, and the fan is offset from the heatsink center by about a centimeter, but it fits and cools pretty decently.
This is just my experience with a tiny board and the 212. If you really want to be sure, take a measurement from the center of the CPU socket to the RAM and compare that to the 212's smallest dimension.
