Ram Question

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
What is the best low profile ram for gaming? I purchased a Noctua cooler and my Corsair Vengeance is wayyy too big to fit all 4 sticks in....which really sucks but it is my own fault.... I thought for sure that it would fit....

Now I am considering buying new ram that will fit.... any suggestions?

Probably Samsung wonder RAM if it still exists.

Check out the Noctua compatibility guide: http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=compatibility_ram_gen&products_id=34&lng=e

If it clears for the D14, I'm sure it'll clear any Noctua heatsink. smile.gif

Not necessarily, D14 is designed to fit large heat spreaders, some other models may not.

The G.Skill Trident X series is the best and it has low profile heat spreader if you remove red fin.

Is it a bad idea to remove the fins on my Corsair Vengeance stick so it will fit in the system?

No, memory is fine for the most part without the heatsinks. Having good airflow I'd say is more than enough cooling for memory in most non overclock situations. The heatsinks often are more aesthetics than utility.

Thanks!

But before doing it make sure you know how to. Otherwise you may end up with chips sticked to your heat spreader and not to the PCB.
