will the Zalman CNPS 12X fit in my board with four ram slots used.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
is there a way to tell before buying a Zalman CNPS 12X that it will fit on my board without my memory interfering
i just need to know compatibility with rams i can measure my stuff out, i have a P8Z68-V/GEN3 mobo and low profile corsair vengeance ram.
iv looked around almost everywhere and couldn't find it out, checked reviews some say it fits perfectly with corsair vengeance LP and some are saying it didnt fit with there Corsair LP ram.

i can't see you having problems with the low profile ram, usually it's only the high heatsink ram that has clearance issues

I agree on this
. Generally the RAM with large heatsinks have a problem. My rig has that issue, so to combat it I had to get lower profile PNY ram.

One thing you can do is check clearances if the cooler's dimensions are posted and see if your RAM will be compatible.
