Take a look at this thread, its a GA P55 UD3R review, but there are pictures at the bottom of 1st page showing MEGA in different orientations, so you can judge RAM clearance, since there shouldnt be much difference between P55 boards.

Yes you can! Install the memory first, then install the fan on the Megahalems. Since the heatspreaders on the DIMM is short, the fan will just hang over them. Trust me, I installed my Mega with a 38mm thick fan hanging over the memory on an AMD rig.

Someone also installed a 38mm thick fan with a 38mm fan shroud over the memory on a 1156 board.

So it shall work with short heatspreader DIMMs.

Thanks for the link. Unfortunately, in none of the pictures has a DIMM installed in slot #4 (from right to left) of the GA-P55-UD3R.

Thank you.

I do not doubt you. I would like to understand why the X-bit labs failed to install a short DIMM in ASUS P6T Deluxe's slot #6. Do you know?

I have a P6T Deluxe and a Megahalems. X-bit Labs probably failed to realize that you can attach the fan to the heatsink after installing the ram first. They likely installed the fan on the heatsink first and thought, "Oh noes! I cannot install my memory sticks!"

Click

Ya that's my rig lol and it does work. In the pic above you see that the heat spreader is a little taller on the ends then in the middle. The shroud/fan sits about 1/16 inch above the tallest point on that heat spreader.

If you had ram any taller then that you would have to push your fan up higher to keep it off the ram, which may or may not affect your temps.

I am using a single Panaflo 120x38mm medium speed. It was too difficult to find a San Ace. I also have another Panaflo on the rear case exhaust.

Thank you.

How can a conceptualized site as the X-bit labs have made such stupidity?

How are you satisfied with medium panaflo, temp/noise wisely?

Finally got a couple of picts. Sorry for the poor quality but my HandyCam is meant for Spring Break beach videos...it hates shooting indoors.







I'll say this: Even with my horrendous CM, I have yet to see a temp above 39c (my sensors are stuck there for a low) running @ 3.8GHz with 1.376v in CPU-Z. This Mega is a beast!!!

Edit: I'll edit these picts when my sister brings my digi cam back to me....whenever that is.
