Help got physical problem with memory!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I got two sticks of this memory with fins on because it would be cool, I didnt know that fins would be so tall.
The motherboard manual says that for better overclocking they should go in the blue slots.
BUT heat pipes of my tower cooler rest against one if I put them in blue slots !!
If I put them in the black slots it clears the cooler so its ok then.

My question is would it be bad to put them in the black slots??

Can you rotate the tower cooler 90 degrees so the heat pipes don't interfere?

And it's not "bad" to put them in the black slots. I'm not completely sure how a certain slot can affect the OC stability of memory.

But at this point all you can really do is:
- Rotate the cooler
- Try the black slots
- Get a new cooler

Really dont wanna turn cooler 90deg, the it wont be blowing out the vent hole in the back of the case, and putting too much hot air in the case.

I took it to mean bad for the overclock, not and bad for memory OC

If someone can say for sure putting memory in black slots wont bother anything I would much rather do that.

Just move them to the black slots then, no big deal.

The blue slots are closer to the CPU that's why they are preferred but either set should work.
