Hello.

I just bought parts to build a new rig and am stuck. Feel free to move this, kind of a compound post.

Specs:
i5 2500k
P67-GD65 MSI board
8 gb 4x2 g.skill with heatsinks ddr3
2 1tb wd hds
Cooler Master V6GT 220-Watt CPU Cooler RR-V6GT-22PK-R1

Problems:
1. The cpu cooler will not fit in any orientation of my board, without being so close to the RAM in slot 1, that I have to put my eye on the stick to see the clearance, really small almost can't see it.

I removed the heatsink on RAM and that is still the clearance, I have a few options:
1.Send the cooler back and get and pray another one fits with clearance due to mobo heatsink design.
2.Test my luck and shave a bit of the heatsink pipe off to make a bit more clearance.
3.I have a LG 775 CPU cooler Tuniq Tower 120 on my old board, and if I could find a way to make it fit, or find brackets for it. and send the old one back, or keep the old one and put on my old board.

I am RMAING it, and will get another kind. I have been reading about the Noctua NH-D14 does anyone know if it will clear my board? P67-GD65? If so, please tell me thanks.
Let me know.


2.Using intel raid controller on my board did a RAID 1 new clean drives, upon installing windows 7 it ask for a driver to load, I have the motherboard disc with all the drivers even the raid ones and no matter what I chose out of 64 Intel raid drivers it gives me that they must be correct 32bit or signed 64bit drivers. Then I can format, but upon going next or trying to install it gives me Error code 0x8...... and says can't install OS to that selected drive.

Any help would be super super appreciated.
