And if I am not mistaken, my memory needs to be in dual channel which as slots 1 & 2 which are the closest to the CPU.
the mount will not get in the way of your ram. the fan from the heatsink might but other than that.. i think you should be ok.

I'd imagine that by mounting it this way with the mount, then you'd get more clearance for your ram, rather than less.

As nafljhy said, if the fan does get in the way, then you can always place the rubber push mounts a bit higher. It won't get the highest airflow through, but it will work, another fan (or the original), sucking air through on the 'left' side, would also help.

All that said, what motherboard are you using? You should be able to get dual channel as long as you use two matched slots.

Have a look at the pics here: http://www.overclock.net/8189859-post218.html

And also consider then dimensions, if you mount it dead centre, the 50mm deep xiggy, should protrude 25mm towards the ram. Add the fan, and you get another 25mm, give or take. So roughly 50mm protruding at the ram. Whereas the sideways mounted xiggy would protrude 60mm towards the ram as it is 120mm wide. So it should give you 10mm more space. A good idea would be to measure the distance from the centre of your socket, to the first dimm.

Hope that helps.

Whoa! I just bumped into this thread... what I'm wondering is why it was not made by Xigmatek in the first place?!? I mean they do awesome stuff and this is just a big fail if you don't have a fan on top of your case...

Anyhow, I'll probably send you a PM after I check with my friend to whom I've built a system with one of those...

nafljhy:I'm hoping this will help me out, I'm about to use an OCZ Vendetta 2. Will your plate allow me to change the orientation of the fan. Anyways, send me an email and let me know the cost to get two of them up to Winnipeg Manitoba in Canada. Does it come with all the hardware I neeD?

no clue why they didn't make it in the first place. i guess it was just costs or they were just following the typical way of mounting an AMD heatsink...

from what i've heard. this apparently does work with the OCZ Vendetta2. well i think it'll allow you to change the orientation of the heatsink so i guess subsequently it would let you change the orientation of the fan.

as for hardware.. i don't provide that. you would need to goto the hardware store and buy 4x 3/4" 6-32 threaded screws..
