The V8 is such a beefy CPU cooler, but I knew the HAF X would definitely house it without a problem.
Yeah, I figured this would be the case, but so many reviews for it and other similar coolers expressed concerns with ram such as the ripjaws, so I wasn't sure. Yours is the first setup I've seen using all the same parts (V8+ripjaws+Crosshair IV), so it looks like I can put that to rest now
I was really thinking twice about getting the V8, but I may just have to now.

and put some time into your case. i promise your temps will thank you!
My current setup is horrible in terms of cable management, but I plan to change that when I put the new parts in there this week or next. Thanks for the link, it looks like there's some good info in there
