Also, it will only block the top PCI-E x1 on my mobo, MSI Z87-G45 right?
Finally, will the SB-E / SB-E Extreme clear my RAM sticks? These are the sticks I plan to install:Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Yes, it will fit but not with the 150mm fan. You will need the SA SB-E Extreme (red/orange TY-143 2500rpm fans) or SA SB-E SE (black/white TY-145 1300rpm fans).. or replace the TY-150 with a TY-141 on SA SB-E. The TY-143 fans are not a problem with noise because you can set their speed with PWM control on motherboard. Mine run 28c @ 700rpm idle and 50c @ 950-1000rpm max load
Yes, only the top PCI slot is blocked.
Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer is 35.6mm tall. You will need 35.6mm (RAM) + 140mm (fan) = 175.6mm from motherboard to side cover. I'm running Crucial Ballistix Sport (30.00mm) and have a few mm clearance... so it will be very close. You will probably need to trim the sound deadening mat for front fan to clear.. or just get shorter RAMEdited by doyll - 7/8/13 at 4:10am
