You're likely going to run into some issues with clearance if you use the blue memory slots, just judging off of a picture of the A70 that I Google'd real quick. However, using the white ones, you should be good.

Again, just guesstimates based on the A70's size.

Blah guess switch RAM or get a H50...I'll know by tomorrow.

I'm just curious, i don't have a Core i5 2500k, but since you do i want to ask...when you overclock the turbo of the 2500K does the frequency of the RAM have to change?

From what i'm aware of, with BE and K series, the ram frequency stays the same....so i'm guessing your running it at 1333MHz? If so what does the heatsink of the RAM itself do? If you take it off will the RAM be damaged by the heat? My guess is No....but someone back me up or correct me if i'm terribly wrong....

It's simply meant to minimize heat, as we're not using bare/naked PC 166 anymore.

So straight up is it or isn't it going to operate long term without heatspreaders at 1333Mhz?

For the amount of aggravation that RAM will cause you, send the package back unopened and buy low profile RAM. You get no benefit from coxcombs.

Well, the heatspreader is the metal plate on the ram which is basically a heatsink, The teeth however, are simply unnecessary.

My thoughts exactly, I'm building an i5-2500k system for someone with a Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B Cooler and I expected this to cause issues regarding space. I selected some ram that's identical, but, doesn't have the giant worthless teeth.

And what brand of RAM were those?

Uhh it's part of the heatsink. They provide more surface to spread the heat around and the way they are shaped, placing a fan on them will dissipate heat a bit quicker.

I have the same RAM, they run relatively cool even on a mild overlock. It has like 4MM of clearance from the TRUE on the first slot. So removing it without taking the heatsink is an issue. lol

Not sure if that will help you, but hopefully you will get a better understanding.

Also seeing the price of these at $60 makes it really tempting to buy another set. I got these for $70 shipped when 8GB kits were still $90+.
