Will Heat Spreaders on ram be a problem for this MB?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
ASUS P8P67 DELUXE (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

I'm going to purchase this motherboard and I've been looking at 8GB Corsair Dominator but I was wondering if I was going to run into any problems with the Heat Spreaders touching the CPU Cooler; overheating or lack of room. I was planning on putting a CORSAIR Hydro H60 High Performance CPU Cooler on there. Does anyone know if I'll be ok?

EDIT: Meant H60. Sorry.

The H70 is probably the smallest cooler you could have in the CPU area besides having a custom water block. You are fine.

You only need to worry about clearance if you are running a massive tower style cooler like a Noctua D14, Thermalright Silver Arrow etc.

I'm betting that the H70 is much smaller than the stock Intel/AMD cooler on the CPU itself.
