doh.gif Guess I'll go with just a CPU block...I want to use the functionality of the headphone jacks if I need to.

Yeah that will work as a boot drive for your OS
Just set it as the primary drive in the BIOS
Not much difference in m2 to sata speeds are pretty much the same

Ah! I bought a Maximus VI Impact without thinking about the compatible RAM list. I read the lists of RAM that's compatible in a owner's manual i downloaded online and it doesn't list the RAM i ordered. Are these lists exhaustive? Will I have problems with http://www.amazon.com/G-Skill-PC3-19200-2400MHz-Trident-10-12-12-31/dp/B0080FFZ8E/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1395001516&sr=8-1&keywords=G+skill+trident+2400 I noticed that it says "Engineered specifically for the Intel Z77 platform" on the Amazon listing, while the Impact is definitely z87. Anyone using this RAM, or know for sure that it works?

I have these and they work perfectly fine, even with timings at 10-11-12-25.
They are great and you can remove the red part of the radiator (needed for large CPU coolers)

Awesome. Thanks for easing my concerns. I will in fact be removing the red heatsinks too.

I use the same cooler and I didn't have a problem with the audio header.
The only way I could mount it though, was with the pipes on the back (backplate) and the fan pushing 1mm the first RAM module. You can check it out here:

So the 92mm fan pushes slightly against the first DIMM? But it fits otherwise?

That's good to know. Thankfully I have low profile RAM.

I have currently oriented the NH-L12 with the heatpipes facing the audio daughterboard. One of the heatpipes is so close to the connector that connecting the cable is impossible.

The reason I have selected this orientation is because the NH-L12 apparently works better in this orientation - the bottom copper plate is slightly concave, check out this review and relevant findings here:

http://www.overclockers.com/noctua-nhl12-review/

Temps are much better with the heatpipes parallel to the RAM slots.
post #710 of 1272
Yeah it gently pushes the first DIMM but without issues. You can also pull a bit back the heatpipe if you feel anxious smile.gif

I know about the orientation, but sadly I couldn't fit the NH-L12 in any other way without it interfering either with the Audio connector or the power PCB with the caps.
I haven't experienced any heat issues or other problems so far so it's definitely a keeper smile.gif
Also and since the 120mm fan can be used (due to height restrictions of my SG06 case) I replaced my case FAN with the 120mm Noctua fan which was a lot better and more silent smile.gif
