Cooler for this build?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I need some help with picking out a cooler, I keep going back and forth and realized probably made a few mistakes in terms of memory clearance.

I ordered this board

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128545


along with this ram

Gskill 16 GB Ripajaw

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231429

I am trying to figure out what cooler to order, I think I wont have enough space for any of the 120 mm coolers like Corsair A50 or 212.

I am thinking of either Coolermaster Tx3 or True Spirit 120

I don't plan on doing any major OC, just maybe to 4 Ghz or so

If you have any suggestions for something else other then two I mentioned, not sure if they will even fit with 4 sticks of ram.

Thanks

Well you can't go wrong with an H60 if your concerned about clearance, and it should be plenty to bring you to 4ghz. What CPU are you buying? You should fill in your rig specs.

I have ordered the same board (with Wifi/BT) and almost the same memory (also Ripajaw X x4).

My current choice of cooler is Thermalright's HR-02 Macho but I don't know if it's fine with the RAM ???

Any idea ?

Damned my dealer send me the wrong card (model without Wifi and BT) and I had to return the mainboard just to learn it won't be available for two weeks.
So I ordered an Asrock Z77 professional instead and I also order a Corsair H100 for the cooling (which don't have any memory clearance issue).
