Im looking for a cpu cooler that dosnt crowd the last ram slot . noctua and silver arrow not allowed ( coffee and cream motif = ick! ) I like the hyper212evo and the new zalman but they both are guilty of the aforementioned offense. any thotts ? and water cooling is out for the foreseeable future . ( $$ ) and no h-series .. Im half deaf already .
The 212+ and Evo barely intrude on the closest dimm slot.
Not enough to be a concern if using ram kits under 41mm tall.
Otherwise you'll have to choose coolers less then 80mm wide.
