Noctua NH-D14 + ASUS P6T V2 = RAM Space?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking of buying a Noctua NH-D14 for my CPU but I don't know if it will leave any space for my 12 gigs of RAM. Anyone know if it will be too big? Or perhaps point me to a better/equal CPU fan that will have the RAM clearance?

Here's a picture of my current rig. As you can see, the far left stick of ram is making contact with my CPU heat sink. And I don't like that one bit.

According to this, your RAM is too tall for the Noctua D-14.
Your best bet is a Corsair H series cooler.

The fan will probably be over your ram, however you can move the fan up so that it does not interfere with the ram. If you're worried about it the Thermalright Archon is pretty great and doest come close to the ram. Megahalems are still darn good coolers too. Even and Argamgeddon would be good and not touch the ram.

Aye I heard the Thermalright Silver Arrow is pretty good too, you think if the Silver Arrow will leave some RAM space?

Your HyperX ram kits are too big. Get something like a Corsair H70.

Aye I was hoping for an air cooled solution. I don't really know anything about water cooling. But if it says it's a simple install I guess that will be my next purchase.

I have the SA and I don't believe I could fit anything bigger than G.Skill Snipers under there. They are almost touching...like by half an inch.

I've seen pictures of Ripjaws X under there but you would have to ask them how they did it.

wow lots of RAM lol. No it won't fit but you MIGHT be able to remove the ram sinks. they do nothing anyways.

Lots of ram to RAM Disk

I actually tried to remove them but I think they're glued on or something. I tried pulling them apart different ways but I just end up stopping as soon as I hear a slight crunching sound.
