Gigabyte trx40 boards and 8 slots of ram

Just curious if anybody has had issues populating the aorus master or aorus pro wifi motherboards with all 8 ram slots. There's a review on amazon where somebody said that the leftmost slot is blocked by the heatsink when using tridentz ddr high profile ram.

I have the Aorus TRx40 Xtreme and I see no obstructions that would prevent the TridentZ from fitting. I haven't built my system yet I'm going to use 8 TridentZ RGB RAM sticks so I'll know when the time comes. Anyway, I really doubt that Gigabyte will not check for compatibility with one of the most popular RAM sticks on the market. Regarding the Master, it looks almost the same space as on the Xtreme so you should be OK. Worst case scenario It will be a snug fit but it should definitely fit. Corsair has even bigger RAM modules!

Thanks for the reply. I ended up getting the tridentz ram to fit, but it is extremely tight, to the point where the ram's heatsink is touching the VRM heatsink, along pretty much the entire length.

I'm concerned this may cause overheating, whether it be the VRM's overheating due to blocked airflow, or the Ram Module overheating due to the VRM transferring heat to the ram stick. Anybody know if I should be concerned? Seems silly for gigabyte to not have accounted for this, maybe I'm over analyzing.
