In the beginning stages of my next build, which includes the Archon. Still doing research on the different parts, although I have some of them locked down and bought.
The Archon will fit nicely in my Corsair 650D
case, and should fit on the upcoming ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3
I just have 2 questions:
1. I see on pictures that several people have attached the TY-140mm "wrongly", in the sense that the flat sides of the fan are on the sides instead of top and bottom as per the manual
. Is there a point to this I can't see, or are people just not reading the manuals?
2. I've read that the RAM slots on the 1155 socket boards are slightly closer to the CPU than on the 1366 and 1156 boards. This means the fan on the Archon slighty covers the first RAM slot, from what I have read. Since I'll be filling all 4 RAM slots, my question is:
Assuming the TY-140mm is mounted with the flat sides on top and bottom as per the manual, how much room (in mm) do I have for the RAM sticks? The Archon product
page shows a clearance of 42.55mm, but I can't see how much below the TY-140mm goes. Is there any wiggle room for adjustments? Can I fit the 40mm Ripjaws-X RAM sticks for example?
