On 2 recent builds I have had problems using aftermarket CPU coolers that I have previously used with good results. Several Zalman and Thermaltake units will NOT fit because of the RAM heatsinks which is pretty much standard on high end RAM these days. Corsair Hydro units have solved the problem, but anyone else having these issues? Any other solutions?
Well a Corsair A70 will do nice as long as you have "Low Profile Ram". The Corsair A50 will do quite nicely for air coolers. the Corsair Hydro Series puts the Water Block on the CPU and keeps the Fans away from the Ram, thus canceling the need for Low profile ram. Eh just a option. There is many Tall Air coolers. You just needa check the pictures of the cooler. see how tall the block part of the Heatsink how tall up it is and how the fans mount.
I had a Noctua NH-D14 cooler
and I was getting horrible temps, I'm not sure if it was a bad cooler and was not functioning right but yeah, I have gone with the Corsair H50 now, and I wouldn't mind trying out the Coolermaster V10
