corsair A70 and patriot intel extreme or gskill ripjawz ram

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
i have a corsair a70 now packed up.

i am wondering if the A70 has enough clearance for patriot intel extreme or gskill ripjawz ram.

right now at ncix in burnaby bc doesn't have the corsair LP which i think it's the best ram.

then kingston ones are all 1.65v so no good.

another question is why the hell are all rams high profile? sucks.

i am ok with what i got right now because i have h100. this is for someone else's computer i am gonna built this weekend.

G.Skill ARES is on par with the LPs from Corsair & are very good (using them in my sig).

The prices vary with speed & timings, but the sweet spot now is 1600MHz with CL9.
This is just to give you a feel for thier price (16GB, 1600 CL10):

yeah those are low profile alright. but ncix doesn't have them. i only do pick up from their store which is close to home.

so the questions is if corsair a70 works with the rams i mentioned. if you don't know the A70 it is sitting extremely low on the motherboard.

The ripjaws are 40mm high (1.58 inches)

& the A70 has around 40-45mm clearance:

My guess it will be a tight fit, but will fit.
