MSI Z97 Mpower MAX AC + 8GB Kingston HyperX blu
Sorry to ask you again,but i don't wanna throw my money outta the window you know


Here is a video of the D15 installed on a Z97 MPower Max A/C with similarly sized RAM - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9VKBFQ_t9c
As you can see, I had absolutely no clearance issues whatsoever, and your case has far more than enough clearance.

If someone is telling you that "it's too heavy and will damage the MB"....the poster should go on your ignore list, as they have absolutely no idea what they are talking about and are regurgitating a fable from 15 years ago when pressed paper PCBs were the norm. This is simply not a real thing that happens in normal usage. I wouldn't recommend throwing your rig down two flights of stairs with the cooler on....but short of that, it isn't a concern.

And if you were transport your rig you could just remove the cooler. Coolers with great mounting systems like the NH-D15 or R1 Ultimate can be mounted or unmounted in under a minute.

So even less reason to be concerned. thumb.gif

Yes - another good point.

I second the Noctua NH-D15...rocking one on my old x58 platform. Keeps my OC'd x5670 to <50C.
