Cool thanks. I tried it today and it ran fine. I have another question about this board, Vengeance RAM and the Venomous X w/120mmx38mm fans. I might possibly get a Venomous X, but can't find any definitive answer on whether a Venomous X will fit with larger(thicker) fans. I found one thread on a forum where the user had regular (25mm thick) fans, and it looked like it was right up to the first black slot:
The Ultra KAZE fans I want to use put an additional 13mm to that. Wouldn't then NOT fit, especially if the Corsair Vengeance RAMs are 63mm high?
Does anyone have this cooler and this board and can confirm/deny my ability to use it?
