Silver Arrow ram clearance.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Just wondering if the G.Skill Ripjaw / Ripjaw X series ram is compatible with the TR Silver Arrow?

I know they're fine with the DH-D14, but i cant find anything online about Silver Arrow clearance.

Also, am i right in saying i'm better off getting 4 x 2GB against 2 X 4GB, if they have the same clock and timings? I doubt i'll ever go above 8GB, so keeping the
extra two slots free isn't an issue for me.

Cheers.

I do believe it clears them. I saw a video on youtube and some guy had Ripjaws and the Silver Arrow.

Not sure about the ripjaw x but my normal ripjaws are too tall, can't get the side panel back on my case unless I use a 120mm fan on the front.

Notice how high the front fan is raised..

Thanks GeForce. So when you raise the fan to its full height, it clears the ram but you cant close your tj07?

If thats the case (No pun intended), i dont like my P182SE's chances.

May have to go with Mushkin Blacklines or regular G. Skill F3's.

Yup that's exactly what happens, I have a P180 laying around too and it doesn't look like the panel would go back on there either, I think the TJ07 is about 1cm wider :l

G Skill Eco's would fit fine too btw

Yeah, i had a look on the manu's websites and the Tj07 is exactly 1cm wider .

I can now see the downside to such a large CPU cooler.
