Memory/ low voltage/ low profile heatsink help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok currently in my pc I have 8 gb of g.skill 1.25 sniper ram. I am wondering if this ram is low profile and would fit well with a thermalright silver arrow SB-E edition.


my build currently is

i5-2500k
dvd player
vertex 4 128gb
ocz zt series 750w fully modular psu
cm 212 hyper evo
GA-z68ZP-UD3 rev 1.0

fans on side of case and on top and rear gelid silent 12 120mm pwm fans, including two on heatsink. I have a small problem with my heatsink.. I may have installed the fans wrong, mount the heat sink wrong, and applied thermal paste wrong because I do not like the temperature, especially when I really do not turn on the heat and out side is usually between -3 through -5 degrees Celsius. I left the silver arrow in it's box because I am trying to enhance this build before putting it in. I am planning on getting an nzxt 820 or 630 phantom (when the later is available) so in my current build my SA SB-E may not even fit.. since it is a lanboy air.


Anyway back on to the subject at hand,

is it ok to over clock with 1.25 memory like the g.skill one?

or are the low profile G.skill series much better to use and if there will be an clearance issue?

I mean is there low profile g.skill, corsair, and patriot with low voltage?

or does low voltage even help OCing CPU?
