Megahalem & EX58-UD3R + triple channel DDR3

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
You guys are probably confused as hell thinking you stumbled upon a thread from 2009 but I can assure you this is 2011.

Anyway, I want to upgrade the cooler for my i7 920. I'm currently using some Spire cooler but it turned out to be **** and I can't take it anymore.

I'm planning on getting the Megahalem but i'm not sure if it will fit given my RAM setup. Anyone here have a rig like this and know if all these components will fit in a copasetic manner?

Some details:

mobo

ram

cpu

case

Thanks .

For everything else, install the fan last on the Megahalems and you would be okay. You may be better off getting the Thermalright Silver Arrow, Noctua NH-D14 or Prolimatech Genesis since they are similarly priced as the Megahalems and perform slightly better.

Edit: Nevermind Megahalems should fit in P182 case.

I ended up ordering the NH-D14 from Noctua. Thanks.
