Is this okay to do with Hyper 212+ in push pull? and one more question!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
The only way I could fit my hyper 212+ with my 4x4gb corsair vengeance (the ones with the stupid high profile fins) is to move the fan on the heat sink up almost a centimeter.

I have a pull fan that's fit normally. is this fine?

I'm looking to replace the 212+ with either a H50 or H60 but I don't really want to use either of those.

Do you guys know any heat sinks with tall bases? Like from the CPU contact area to the base of the heatsink block (or w/e its called)

| <--- that's what I mean. a heatsink with a tall stem or w/e lol

there has to be a heatsink that can accommodate the vengeance ram.

while the current setup works, its annoying and I'm looking for a new cooler anyway so I might as well buy a new one.

Im 99% sure that a noctua nh-u12p should give enough clearance for vengeance ram.

Corsair does have their slim line of memory now too, but from what you have done I would assume would be fine as long as its blowing air into the cooler.

its okay to do push pull with the fan moved up a bit. thats how i used to have it. it won't affect your temps at all

ditto, I have both mine offset as far as it will go down on one side, to get more air passage to the VRMs , and up on the other, to miss the rams. The 2nd fan doesnt do a lot of extra cooling.

Yes it is fine. I have both of my push/pull fans up almost an inch and the temps are where they should be.
