Fitting issue (RAM, Case, CPU Cooler, Motherboard)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I'm looking for some info about no clearance problem with the following configuration:

- Fractal Design R3 Case
- ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3
- Thermalright Macho HR-02
- G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage

Will there be some clearance issues, like RAM not having enough space under Thermalright Macho, or Thermalright Macho not fitting into Fractal Design R3 case?

I would appriciate some info about it.

cheers
Lucas

If the heatsink on the RAM is ridiculous, you should be good. I thought I was going to have the same problem but didn't.

that will work

if you want to save some cash, get 2 of these ram kits
Patriot Signature 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory with heatshield Model PSD38G1600KH ($47/37ar)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220570

ram rebate limit to 1/customer, you will need to ship the 2nd ram kit to a friend or work for the 2nd rebate

Well, Those Ripjaws X are 40mm high with heatsinks if that's any help.

Thanks for the advice man.

However, I'm not in US wink.gif, will have my friend order it and then ship it to me, and I don't want him to do much more than minimum. Also I kinda set myself to those G.Skills wink.gif

cheers

They do sell low profile RAM, that is what I got to solve this problem...
