Anyone have any problems mounting a Coolermaster TX3 next to a Kingston HyperX RAM cooler on an mATX board?

Need to know before I order the TX3...

tx3 is too small for a 955 imo

the 212+ or 212evo will be about $10-15 more and will cool it much better

both will fit over the ram just fine

The clearance on the RAM isn't the issue... BTW the 212+ is on my preferred list, but my wife is going tits at the budget as it is...

I'm more concerned with the clearance on the RAM cooler fans.

Would I be better rotating the TX3 so that the fan is pulling air from the bottom of the case?

its best to have the cpu cooler push air tward the rear of the case

Went with the TX3, but looking in to getting another 92mm Coolermaster fan to run it in push/pull
