Need cooler suggestions

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys!

I am working up a new build with an Asus P8Z68
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131753

and either the G.Skill RipjawX 16GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231456

or the Corsair Vengeance 16GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145347

Does anyone have a setup close to this? I'd like to know which coolers might actually clear this ram?

My case will be the Silverstone FT02B-W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811163161

Thanks for reading!

EDIT: I've decided to go with the low-profile sticks and save myself infinite aggravation.

If you're on a budget i would recommend the Coolermaster Hyper 212 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103065

Otherwise i would suggest the Noctua NH-D14, it is seen to be the best air cooler available.

The Corsair Hydro series are also very good, you don't have to worry about clearance with one of them and they require no maintenance to ensure performance.

16GB of RAM? Unless you are doing some serious encoding save yourself some money and get a max or 8gb. Then for your cooler perhaps a H80/H100? No clearance issues for the RAM. Just need to find placement for the rad. But with a $250 case you should not have a issue with that.

if you go for the nh-d14, you're going to have to consider the ram profile for clearance. With the corsair hydro series, you don't have to worry about the clearance
