Hey guys. I am planning on building my first computer. For my RAM I was planning on getting the G.Skill Ripjaws X Series*. I am going to get the 2 pack of 8GB so I will have 16GB for my system. To cool my i7 3770k I was planning on getting the Noctua NH-D14. My question is will this memory fit under the fan on the D14? And also any reviews/thoughts/suggestions on this memory would also be appreciated. Thanks in advance!


*G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL

Check the Noctua website it has a compatibility list for motherboards. Depends how your memory channels are setup on your motherboard.

Hi there, i admit i am addicted to overclocking.I have the NH-D14 same ram in my secondary rig and it fit's fine.If you plan to overclock your ram.I wouldn't suggest getting that series. G.SKILL has other ram better for that.
