Dark Knight and Mushkin Redline

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi, guys

I've been searching the web for the last 2 hours trying to find the exact dimensions for the heatsink and the RAM but no luck.
I am going to buy the Asus M4A89GTD Pro/ USB3.0 motherboard and the 4GB of Mushkin Redline RAM (with Frostbyte heatsink). Now what worries me is if a Xigmatek Dark Knight will fit. Neither the Xigmatek nor the Mushkin site seems to have exact measures of their products.
Could you help me with that one? So far I've found this site stating there should be 50mm distance but my scaling calculations (using images and total height) give me from 30 t 40mm.

50mm he says

I REALLY hope you can help me

GreenStone


EDIT: using the measures from Kingston site Kingston measures and scaling it for the Mushkin Redline modules they would be about 38.5mm high.

I have yet to see a CPU cooler that the Frostbyte does not work with, they are not that tall.

From the top of the ram slot to the highest point of the heat spreader is 36mm.

Also,if you are just using 2 sticks you should be fine as you can just use the 2 outer slots.

Hey, Sean! Thanks a lot! That is a great relief! Good to know that all the components will fit.

@Redwoodz

Yes, that is also possible. But I've read that the blue slots (next to the CPU) are the primary ones.

Don't Hesitate. All the Mushkin RAM I've used has been Frostbyte HS's and fit anywhere any RAM with a heatspreader will fit. A CPU cooler that interfered with heatspreaders as small as this wouldn't sell.

Unfortunately, they do interfere. A Dark Knight is 35mm from CPU socket to first fin (according to FrostyTech). If mounted with the default AMD clips, they might not fit. I'll have to figure it out sooner or later whether all 8GB of Frostbyte heatsinks will fit or not. My current kit (996629) uses heatsinks similar to the Frostbyte.

Hmm....now I really don't know what to think about this whole setup

EDIT: could you tell me where it is on the Frostytech site? The review doesn't mention the 35mm.

As Redwoodz said just use the outer ram slots, the 2nd and 4th memory slot on your mobo, if your using 4GB of ram. The outer set of slots usually work better for ram clocking anyway on AM3.

Yeap, I will just go on and order the cooler too (with the rest of the setup). Maybe the rig will be the first one to have that combination...YAY!
