    Nope it has nothing to do with the speed, its more like the heatsink of the trident x is too long thus it wont fit under the d14 cpu cooler :).

    Hope this helps :)
  2. ya a bit relaxing thanks :)

    can i use it together with noctua, or say do i need to?? (while OCing) ??
  3. Nope i dont think you can, and with rams you dont really need cooling, even after ocing but just as a word of advice if you do decide or are going to oc, just keep in you do something wrong be prepared to replace things because you can burn almost everything and need to buy new ones, no company will rma it for you.
  4. ooops so i should just be patient with BIOS XMP enabled :) ??
  5. yep shouldn't worry about the ram, the heat sinks on them tends to be a sufficient passive cooling.
