They are a stupid fashion gimmick.

I have tall RAM with a big heat spreader. Would it even fit? How do I measure that? Starting at the top of the DIMM slot or the bottom?

The NH-U12S and NH-U14S are so slim that they dont stick over the RAM slots.

Or you can get the NH-D15/NH-D15S which have a part of the bottom cut out so you can fit very tall RAM under it.
As you can see

Cool, thanks. I'll look into it.

Ugly, yes, but what about the next time you build a system? You'll have a cooler around that will at least work with just its weight pushing down on the CPU, you won't have to build a new loop just to make sure your CPU and motherboard isn't DOA.
If it's a short term thing, then why does fashion matter? And hey, if anyone who knows anything about PCs takes a look, they won't see ugly, they'll see a BA Noctua cooler. They're kinda famous for being awesome biggrin.gif

I got my replacement CPU and it's having the same problem again. The CPU temperature looks fine at first, but slowly climbs until it reaches the 90's and I have to turn the PC off. All I'm doing is sitting there staring at HWmonitor. No other programs open aside from Avast antivirus. The only programs that are even installed are the antivirus, HWmonitor, Chrome and drivers. Could it be a bad motherboard? I have no idea what's going on and this is extremely frustrating.

The first post has all the parts listed. Here's the link to my build log thread. It has pictures. http://www.overclock.net/t/1572362/build-log-good-things-come-in-small-packages#post_24455502 Yes of course I have exhaust fans. I'm not retarded. 2 120mm intakes on the front. 2 120mm exhausts on the top. 1 140mm exhaust on the back.

I just went and checked to be 100% sure. All 4 clips on the cooler are through the back of the motherboard and clipped in as they should be. Using stock thermal paste this time since I ran out of TX-4 trying to fit it last time so that eliminates human error on the thermal paste as the cause.

Have you touched the cpu heat sink to see if it's really as hot as reported? it could be a faulty sensor on the board itself.

I'd rather not burn myself. Is there any other way to test that? Maybe I could poke it with a cooking thermometer?
