Smallest Ive seen are corsair with 34mm low profile kits, and I really don't want those. I'm looking for aesthetics, but most of the ram I know won't fit because their heatsinks are huge (adata/geil)
Honestly, 34mm tall RAM is not 'low profile' .. except in the mind of those who have only used hi-profile RAM with big heat spreaders that are basically worthless because modern RAM does not generate enough heat to need them.
Normal height RAM is basically normal RAM PCB (printed circuit board) height.
The normal sizes of RAM PCBs (printed circuit boards) are
DDR4 RAM PCBs are 133.35 mm long and 31.25 mm tall
DDR3 RAM PCBs are 133.35 mm long and 30 mm tall.
27mm + 5mm = 32mm
32mm RAM will fit under the fins.
Low profule RAM is like Samsung Green which is 21.4mm tall.
According to Corsair, the Vengeance LPX is 31mm tall
I know how you feel. Trying to find the physical mesurements of RAM is stupid hard. I'ts like trying to find dragon teeth.
To much marketing hype with names like 'low profile', 'normal height' and 'high profile' .. which mean nothing without a physical measurement .. which they almost never give.
