Does anybody own a hyper 212 plus with large heatsink ram and fit properly?
Also would help if you own a MSI Z68A-GD55 or 65 (gen3) motherboard.
I have a 8 inch wide case I dont know if that includes the extra half inch or so indent for side fans.
Just looking for someone with something very similar who can help with this before I order in the hyper 212 plus.
Even so, I think using the first and third RAM slots gave me about 1MM clearance you should be fine no matter what if the heatspreaders aren't taller than the ones I linked. (I'll get measurements later, can't be bothered to open my case atm )
Oh yeah, those modules have heatspreaders that are about three times larger than the ones I have. Though about the differences between our motherboards, does anyone know if the placement of the socket and memory slots are SIGNIFICANTLY different for every motherboard? If it's generally in the same area, as I said before, use slots 2 and 4 (I think it would be slots 1 and 3 on your motherboard, since it should be labeled as 0, 1, 2, 3) and you should be fine...
But if that doesn't work, as nna2 said, putting the fan on the other side will do just fine.
The high heat spreaders on the standard Vengance memory causes all kinds of clearance issues. I have no idea why they made it that tall being DDR3 does not even need heat spreaders. Get the low profile version of the Corsair Vengance or any GSkill Ripjaws and you will not have any problems with any aftermarket coolers.
