Can anyone tell me if the Hyper 212 clears the ram slots on this board?

Also does the Sabertooth have UEFI bios?

NVM a newegg review answered the UEFI question but still curious abou tthe hyper 212.. I didnt realize how massive this thing was!
I don't have the 212, but my cooler is a similar size. Basically, I just had to nudge the fan up by around 1mm so that it would be directly above my ram sticks. If there is some play in the Hyper212 fan mounting, you can probably get away with it assuming you don't have ridiculous ramsinks.

I have the Hyper 212+ installed on my Sabertooth and it is a bloody tight fit! The cooler is putting some minor pressure on my first DIMM in slot 1. Any RAM with a large extravagant heat disperser isnt going to go into slot 1 with the 212+ present.

For reference, the RAM i'm using is:

Hope that helps.

Yeah, I figure with tall heatspreader it would very difficult. Learned my lesson as well.

Back then I bought my AM2+ mobo, I bought a Corsair DDR2 DHX (the silver with high spreader, looks like a DOMINATOR but with a "paint job"), and I couldn't stick my cooler in at all.

Lesson learned.

Currently running 1100T BE @ 4.08GHz... Seriously want more, but the chip isnt having it... Still playing around with a higher base clock/lower multi, but its slow going.

Does anyone know if the Silver Arrow has fitment problems with the memory slots on the Sabertooth or Crosshair V? I am using all 4 slots and want to make sure this cooler isn't going to block any sockets.

Thanks.
