CPU Heatsink+Asus p8p67 mobo+Corsair Vengance=Problem - Page 4

post #31 of 37
Thread Starter 
I'm going to ask the store manager if I am allowed to purchase the x2 Corsair Vengeance RAM, and if it doesn't fit with the NH-D14, to be able to exchange it for another ram memory kit.

Let's hope he'll be okay with that
If he doesn't let me, I'll just go with the Kingston HyperX

Just a question about when I get the Vengeance sticks, there is a CL8 and CL9 edition.
I understand what CL8 and CL9 mean, but it there a difference worthy of the extra $20 cost between the CL8 and CL9 versions?

This is a good read.

Imho, more expensive memory is only a benefit for competitive overclockers with Sandy Bridge. Overclocking is done only via multipliers so you don't have to worry about your ram limiting your BCLK/FSB. If you don't bench competitively in something like HWBot, you can save some money getting the CL9 memory. Of course, it is up to you.

Do you mean change the direction the CPU Cooler is pointing at?
assuming your cooler is horizontally mounted I moved the 120mm fan closest to the ram to the other side of the heatsink. You do have to kinda pry the clips off and bend them the other direction but it works if you're worried about space, which I was when I had the DH-14 and vengeance.

stupid centrecom hasn't replied yet. They won't tell me if I'm allowed to exchange the Corsair Vengeance kit for another memory kit if the vengeance doesn't fit >.<

They never replied >.<
Instead I've decided to get G.Skill Ripjaws-X F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM 8GB

I'm still not sure whether the Vengeance can clear it though
Sorry.
