But you can see the ram?
Here's somebody with their ram installed

Well, that's one knock against the AXP-100. It's not big enough to cover tall RAM and block it. Too bad. Had such high low profile hopes for it.

Then why does the size matter?

I'm trying to figure out what's what . I have information saying I had to be 32mm Max and then I have pictures of completed build with visible ram


Also there's 4 ways to install the cooler, I installed mine like figure 3

Got these https://m.newegg.com/Product/Index?itemNumber=N82E16820011268&Keyword=Impact%20


And either that diagram is lying or I'm missing the part that makes those other figures possible. I barely got my ram to fit without the metal touching the ram

What Diagram? What figures?

I think Avexir ROG Impact series are 40mm tall. While there are many taller, it is definitely not low profile and to me not really even 'normal height' RAM.

This one


the mounting bracket is a rectangle shape with 4 scew holes, you use a crossbar, but the crossbar isnt long enough to achieve the top right and bottom left figures





Well i goofed, i must have mixed them up with some other ram's height. Thought they were the same as the vengeance and they do say on their product page, that theyre for small form factor tho lol.


On the bright side i got them to fit, but the cooler was a pain in the ***

I think the images are correct. I think you just need to turn the top bracket 90 degrees. Then you can mount the cooler crossbar onto it.

Thermalright has made several different mounting plates depending on application. Some smaller with different crossbar spacing. Some have smaller overall dimensions to clear motherboard components close to CPU.

The good news is you got it to fit. thumb.gif

Could be, I'm not sure if that's possible on my board


Yes I did, and I learned that site like newegg should really have an easier way on finding ram kits for smaller builds
