Haha, I read this and then realized my bros system has both in his slots. I often forget he got Snipers after I bought mine. Called him and he told me they were taller. doh.gif

In any case I do know that if you can't fit the RAM under the stock 140mm fan you can alway bump them out to slots 2 and 4, change the orientation of the fans or pick up a Noctua 120mm fan and mount it in place of the stock 140mm depending on how you wish to proceed.

Not sure if Megahelms is even an option though cause I looked it up on Newegg and it's only showing Intel mounting brackets.

Some people swear by the CM Hyper 212+ so you might go that route as well. mellowsmiley.gif

Hi first post so be gentle.
I am now onto my third built and its becoming, well slightly expensive, thank god some parts are transferrable. Just finished my new built and i keep getting the same two BSOD.
In a nut shell one was to do with the intel modem which was fixed after a little tinkering about but the other BSOD which is alway related to IRQL less than or not equal and i think amd64. has got me confused. After checking on the net is said that the ram could be the problem as it might be causing a memory leak leading to the PC crashing.
So finally heres the question i wanted to ask. Would the Ram be the cause of the crashing and if so will the 8gb (2 x 4gb) of G skill 8GBXL Ripjaws X for Intel Sandybridge Platforms DDR3 PC12800 1600MHz i have just bought be of any use

Yes... try booting up with only one stick of ram and see if you get the BSOD. If you do, swap sticks and try again. If you don't BSOD, then you know which is the problem stick.

If you get BSOD on both, try using the "GO" button feature on your mobo. This synchronizes the ram to the mobo. When it boots up you may see a really low clock on the ram. Just go into the BIOS and tinker around there. If you still get BSOD, try memtest86 on them and see what the results are. If you come up with lots of errors, then you have your definite answer. This should be run for several hours (8 minimum maybe? - need to research that a bit).

I had BSOD issues when I moved ram over from my old MSI mobo. Go button did the trick for me with my old pair of Corsair sticks. If you do decide to move on to new ram, the QVL is your friend... smile.gif

I'm not sure since I've never used Ripjaw X RAM. I would think that flipping the fans and and moving the front fan to the back side of the DH-14 would negate any issue that could arise from being set up the recommended way. I could be wrong, but I'm assuming that it's possible to do it that way. I do know that the RAM slots are quite a bit closer to the Socket which can't help any when you're trying to use an aftermarket cooler with performance RAM.

Lord God, what do I need to do to convince you guys. Ripjaws with the high-rise heat sink will not fit under the Noctua.

I told you, and will tell you again, I have RipJaws lying here on the table useless; I had to go buy Corsair RAM with a low profile, and even that requires the Noctua be removed to access the RAM slots.

Perhaps I have presented myself in too understated a way on OCN. But after 21 years of building computers I know what the hell I'm talking about -
- or - I keep my mouth shut!

Honestly, I find you guys continuing to ask the same silly @ss question downright insulting! So buy the Noctua; buy the RipJaws and learn from experience.

As my father used to say, "Let him fail. Failure is a far better teacher than you can ever be."

So for me this issue is closed. Translation: I really don't give a Royal $hit what you do. cool.gif

rolleyessmileyanim.gif Someone tinkle in your Wheaties this morning ICG?

I distinctly remember you saying that your RAM wouldn't fit under your Fan. Would a 120mm fan have fixed that? Being that the D-14 comes with a 140 set?

Nobody is saying you don't know what you're talking about. But he already has the RAM. If the fix of the issue before he has the Noctua is that simple I'm sure that he would like to go that route if he can. Being that the D-14 is the better cooler that he could use. Right?

So no need to get yourself worked into a tizzy. No money has been spent on the cooler, he's wanting to work out how he could get it to work without spending on it yet. This is the time and the place to do that. wink.gif

HI every1.
I noticed i was running my HD in IDE mode... but when i switch to AHCI it wont bot.

It says "NTLDR is missing"

I'v downloaded AHCI drivers from asus website, and flashed to my pendrive.... but i can't boot it to install these drivers.

I'm missing something?

Why are you trying AHCI, if I may ask?

I've never tried that I can recall so I'm wondering if maybe there is some performance difference that I'm not aware of.

Go into BIOS and see if the drive is being detected. If it is, then check your boot priority? Never played with AHCI so not sure but this would be my first thought.
