Will the the Gene-Z with issues with a Corsair A70, SLI and a Storm Sniper have any issues as far as fit?

Just wondering if this Corsair cooler would fit. I've read issues with that particular cooler blocking one of the PCI slots on this board.

The A50/A70 does not come anywhere close to blocking a PCIe slot. It does, however, block the first 2 RAM slots, so you're limited to 2 sticks.

I changed the noisy stock fan of my PSU with a Gentle Typhoon and because I didn't had the right tools, I just hooked that up on my zalman fan controller.

Thanks. I only have 2 sticks anyway.

Lol I ended up taking my pc to Office Depot to figure out why my HD/optical wasn't being recognized. I wasn't angling it when I tried to plug in the sata power and paid them $10 when they connected them because I felt retarded.

Anyway it was kinda funny because the three workers were just going gaga over the board asking me tons of questions about it and complimenting it continuously. The fact that it had debug LEDs, start/reset button etc they were acting like it was god in the flesh. I must admit, as a pc newbie I felt pretty badass for those few minutes even though i know next to nothing :X

After a few days, everything seems to be running smoothly.

I've now passed 100 passes of LinX on All Memory, 12 hours of Prime Blend, Small and OCCT Small and Medium. Also 400% HCI Memtest.

But then I got a BSOD this morning while alt-tabbing from a game. Weird stuff. Then again, there's always the risk of the odd BSOD when you're overclocked, even if you pass every stability test out there.

How is the new, unflashable BIOS doing for people?

Can't you place it the other way?

Caution! Not sure if you can't place the A70 the other way? This also depends where you want the air to go...

But if you want to go like on the picture that was shown and this is really blocking the first 2 RAM slots I would avoid it. You need to fill 2 slots of the same color and they are BLCK/RED/BLCK/RED (see manual).

Yeah but if you LOOK at the photo ... that's what's happening ... the RAM are in slot's #2 RED and #4 RED ... or am I seeing that wrong ?
