Closed CPU cooler question. Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: January 25, 2012 3:33 PM in Systems Share rob1235 January 25, 2012 2:10:10 AM Is this the best cpu heat sink fan I can get for under $40? If yes, will it interfere with my ram's heat spreader? If yes, what is some good 1600 ram without heat spreaders. Thanks in advance!

Because it only has a fan on one side, it gives you slightly more room to play with RAM heat spreaders... You could get the low profile version of the same RAM to be safe: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I think its a better choice anyhow, and the same price. Never know what you might want to do down the track with CPU cooling. Other low profile RAM, slightly cheaper but still good: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... rob1235 January 25, 2012 2:14:52 PM Best answer selected by rob1235.
