Any AIR coolers available that do not block ram slots? - Page 3

post #21 of 31
Thread Starter 
The reason i want something better than what I have right now is due to the RAM limitation and the OC wall I hit every time I try for a 4.3Ghz OC. Temps are too high ATM, like almost 60C LOAD (TEXAS weather) @ 4.2Ghz, figured I should get better temps and a possible higher clock with the H100, also will be upgrading CPU and mobo/ram once Piledriver drops or maybe SB if PD sucks. Anyways went ahead and purchased the H100, thanks to everyone who helped out here on this thread thumb.gif

If you grab (well buy) the Samsung DDR3L Low Profile ram, you can install any coolers you wanted. The ram is as tall as your thumb / nickel / penny.

The ram is a great option still, low power and heat, and high OCing potential
