Low-Profile Ram

If I use a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ will I need special low-profile RAM?

Thanks!

  1. If it covers the RAM slots, most probably yes:
    http://www.corsair.com/support/faq/memory/ - how tall is my Corsair memory module?
    and
    http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6603 (37 mm)
  2. It depends on the motherboard, but to play it safe you'll want low-profile RAM. Some have no plans to fill all four RAM slots, so they're not concerned about losing access to a RAM slot due to cpu cooler, but honestly that it just silly.

    Just get low profile RAM and you know you'll be covered (or uncovered!).
