Would a large CPU cooler such as the Noctua NH-D14 or Hyper 212+ be able to fit on this motherboard and not hit the RAM?
The mobo looks pretty spacious around the CPU but I can't tell... anyone actually have experience with some of these big coolers?
I have the Extreme4 and there was plenty of room for all 4 slots with the Hyper 212. I'm using Ripjaws, so YMMV.
I had more issues with the case side panel only a couple mm clearance to get it back in place. And forget about adding side fans.
