Thread Starter 
Been searching forum looking to see who has this board, or one in the family. I have one on the way, and corsair vengeance memory trying to see what cooler to get that will fit nice and not block my memory. Any recommendations or tell me what you have ill research it. pic would be nice too if you feel like posting.

thanks

I bought a 16gb kit of vengeance about a month ago.
Great ram, I got 2166mhx out of them... (Z68-UD7-B3 mobo, I7 2600K)

The only problem i had was the compatibility for aftermarket coolers!
I have tried heaps of coolers in the hope i could have kept the vengeance kit
but i couldnt find any decent coolers that are compatible. I found only two coolers that were decent and able to fit with those huge heatsinks.

-Prolimatech Armageddon, with xigmatek 120mm fans.
-Noctua NH-U12P, right side fan has to be rased a little but it fits.
- Corsair H70\\50, fits fine of course but i would not recommend the H series coolers to anyone (better out there for the money!)
-Corsair are bringing out their new H series water coolers which look like they are designd much better!!! and yes they will be compatible with the vengeance ram modules.

So to cut a long story short, I sent back the vengeance kit and bought a 16gb kit of Gskill Ripjaw x. The Gskill x kit is compatible with all aftermarket coolers.

I saw that vengeance memory had a really tall heatsink so I went with the shorter heatsink Gskill stuff. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-428-_-Product

It fits under my (seemingly quite large) Thermalright Venomous-X. There is very little clearance though. I suspect most of the larger aftermarket coolers will have an issue with the Corsair stuff, or anything with the tall heatsinks.

Anything straight up generally work, highrisers should always work with one fan, just put it on the left side.

That runs my PIIx4 at stock speeds without a fan.
