Hey guys,
I am wondering if the Gelid GX-7 cpu cooler will fit nicely on the MSI z77a gd55 board without blocking any RAM slots.

thanks in advance

Hello ricardochen8;

Unless you're using RAM with extra tall heatsinks there shouldn't be any problem.

I saw one Gelid GX-7 review where the test system has the RAM installed with slot 1 empty but as I recall it wasn't a Z77 board. You could take that to mean there might be an issue.

Here is a review with a socket 1155/1156 motherboard:

Heatsink mounted without the fan.


In worse case scenario - you can always flip the fan around and install it on the back side of the heatsink. *(dual fan setup possible if there is enough clearance, but works fine with a single fan)
