Thinking i'm going to get this and put it all together but saw somewhere that the cooler might not work in some configurations with some RAM... it wasn't quite my set up but wondered what people had experience on SB Z77 builds and I guess the first few IB builds. My plan would be to mount it blowing front to back given the vent configuration on the case and my plan not to open the top up... but this would put it near the memory.
Also, wondered about the memory compatability - I want 16GB, will this work?
Intel Core i7 3770K (Sure i DON'T need to link to this )
Other than being sold in sets of four? Not really.
The RAM connects directly to the CPU so the chipsets are irrelevant. Both LGA2011 and LGA1155 CPUs are intended for use with unbuffered DDR3 DRAM and short of odd BIOS or board quirks, any RAM that works with one should work with the other.
