Ripjaws is 40mm and Sniper is 42mm. So, they are still taller than the clearance 38mm (if the bottom fan of NH-C14 is attached).
For Hyper X, the blu and Genesis series will both fit but the T1 series will not.
Actually, according to Noctua's compatibility list for NH-C14, your motherboard Asus Maximus IV Extreme gets a green tick
. This is interesting because if it has potential RAM clearance issue, it should receive a yellow x
. So, does this mean that it would not have clearance issue (due to its 3 possible install orientations of the heatsink?)?
