The title says it all pretty much.
I am just wondering about the temperature difference between a push and pull config, I will be doing some slight overclocking nothing major.
Anyways with my 2x4 vengeance the hyper 212 is an issue, So it will have to be pull config until I get some low profile, unless it really won't make too big a difference where I won't be stressing my i5 2500k too much anyways.
I have hyper 212 & 2x4 corsair vengeance (high profile heat spreader ) in my MSI Z68A GD55. I put the RAM on the 2nd & 4th slot on my motherboard & it does not conflict with the FAN being in the PUSH position. Perhaps it is possible to do the same in your motherboard.
Yes I do have the same motherboard.
Which is awesome because I was looking for someone with the same motherboard for a while to figure that out.
So using DIMM slot 2 and 4 works fine?
Kind of confusing because in the manual it says to use DIMM1 first for successful system boot.
i have a 212 i also have gskill ripjaws and some older gskill cas 7 pi's which have even higher heat spreaders the push pull config will fit if i use ram slots 2 and 4 the other solution i have for you is that you can mount the fan slightly offset, as in sitting a bit high as the clips will grab anywhere on the heatsink as the locking notch in the heatsink runs the entire length of it so effectively the heatspread hight isnt really that much of a concern with the 212's
I would would put it in slots 2 and 4 if not for the motherboard guide telling me to always use slot 1 for successful boot.
I understand the apprehension specially if the manual specifically say so. But I have done the same to not follow the manual in an MSI 790FX motherboard & its working for me too. I don't know why MSI make such restrictions in the manual but it certainly is not exactly true.
Sorry I made a mistake in claiming I have hyper 212. I actually have the V6 GT (the hyper 212's are in my kids). See how it goes with the 2x4 vengeance in slot 2 & 4. Everything works fine.
Assuming you're talking about the mobo, he has the same one you have (listed in his sig). Based on that, on your experience with it, I'd say you're fine, OP. Shouldn't be a need for the pull config.
Sorry for the delayed reply. Problem with internet connection.
I totally missed the sig. By having exactly the same motherboard, he should be really safe. As mentioned in my earlier post, I have the V6-GT which I believe is even wider than the hyper because of the shroud.
