Check here for RAM compatibility

EDIT: and the heatsinks can be removed from the RAM if it doesn't fit anyway

This might be heresy but I don't intend to overclock my i7-930. My goal is to build a quiet computer. I've bought the Antec P183 and would be willing to buy the NH-D14 and use the "ultra low noise" adapters with it if it is quieter then the stock cooler. Again, since I don't intend to oc I don't need to run it at full speed. I just need to make sure if cools the CPU as well as the stock would have yet produce less noise.

Thanks.
I've never heard the i7 stock cooler, but I can tell you with certainty this cooler will be quieter. Just compare the two sinks' relative surface areas. The more area you have, the less forced convection you need. And in general, the bigger the fan, the quieter it will be for any given air flow (within reason).

ripjaw can you post temperature comparison pics with the noctua d14 3rd fan on and off and see if the 3rd fan really makes a dif in temps? i read on the website the temp decrease is minimal.

I think because the last fan would be a pull fan so it wouldn't really be pulling much air. Also do you think you could do a comparison with the last fan being a 140mm fan I see you chose the 120mm noctua fan you could switch out the exhaust fan for the 140mm just for testing.

Thanks!

eCoManiac, Thanks for the information. I'm probably going to pull the trigger and buy the NH-D14 but will probably always wonder in my mind how loud or quiet is the stock cooler. My intention is to install the NH-D14 as I build this machine from the beginning.

The case and the psu are important as well, as you prolly know. I've got the P180 which I presume is an earlier version of your 183. You can't hear any noise when the processor is throttled back when idling. And when the fans crank up during gaming, you can't hear it over all the machine gun fire and explosions coming out of the speakers. lol

Out of curiosity, does Intel have an equivalent to AMD's cool 'n' quiet? I've been boycotting intel for so long, I've lost track of its tech.
