**The Official Prolimatech Club**(UPDATED 1/11) - Page 71

post #701 of 1212
Hello! I'm new to Overclock.net... 1st post! Anyways I am currently putting together a list of parts that I want for a new i7 920 build. One of those parts I've had my eye on is the Megahalem. The one thing I am concerned about at this point is the RAM clearance. I have read that I should get low profile RAM, but as far as I can tell most websites don't always mention the actual size of the RAM.

I have not chosen my RAM yet but I'm interested in the G Skill Tridents.


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231272


Would these clear? I know the other G Skills with the lower profile would work, but what about the Tridents?

I guess what I'm asking is there a current list of the top 5or 6 DDR3 1600 models that will work underneath the Megahalem?

Thanks for any suggestions!

Would you be using a 25mm thick push fan for your megahalem? If so, you won't have to worry about the height profile of your RAM sticks.

What mobo are you getting? It really depends mostly on that.

It depends upon the board. On a X58 motherboard, the ram slots may still interfere with a 25mm fan. You want memory to be about this size to not worry about CPU heatsink fitting issues:



It would be nice if the motherboard heatsinks are not too tall either. A northbridge heatsink used on a Gigabyte motherboard is a good size for the Megahalems. Some of the EVGA motherboards have really tall northbridge heatsinks that interfere with large CPU heatsinks. The big ram heatspreader and big northbridge coolers are more useful to watercooling systems than aircooling.

Sorry about that, I forogt to consider the mobo. You're right

Count me in.




EDIT: These pics were taken tonight, NOT 2006, but my friend didn't set the date on his camera.

Thank you everyone for replying!

kevindd992002: Yes I would be using a 25mm fan. I'm looking at the Scythe Gentle Typhoons in a push/pull.

lelouche & drjoey1500: I've got it narrowed down to 2 motherboards...

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2

or the...

EVGA E758 A1


I'm leaning heavily towards the ASUS board though.

Get the ASUS board. I have it and it's great. Awesome BIOS options, and OC's very well.

Yep, I have an old Asus board and it's been great. Your computer has most of the elements that I'm looking to get. I even have an M-Audio 2496 already that I'm going to move into this new build.


Core i7 920
Asus P6T Deluxe V2
6GB G. Skill DDR3 (I've had my eye on these as well.)
M-Audio Audiophile 2496
Corsair 850HX
Prolimatech Megahalems

Case: Cooler Master ATCS 840 or I'm waiting to see reviews on the new Silverstone FT02.

Videocard.... oh man, this one I can't even decide until I ready to buy.
