Well, I am looking into purchasing a Cooler Master V8 GTS, and I was just curious, does anyone have any experience with this cooler in the Asus Crosshair Formula Z board. I have very low profile RAM so that should not be an issue, but I was worried about the heat sink on the board being too close/tall. I would just like some first hand experience for verification.

Thanks!

I do not have one but judging from the gts is constructed I am 99.9999999999 percent sure it will clear the Vrm Heatsinks as well as everthing else.

Thanks for the advice. I actually ended up purchasing this cooler and I was able to install it without any troubles at all.

My son has one.
That cooler is huge and heavy.

Heatsink Dimensions: 154 x 140 x 153.5mm (6.1 x 5.5 x 6.0 in)

Weight
Heatsink: 854g (1.9lb)
Fan Weight: 110g (0.24 lb) x 2
Total: 1074 grams (2.38 lb)

With your very low profile RAM and a reasonably wide case, you should not have any problems.
Why do you think you need a cooler that big? The main board hides underneath it.
Lesser coolers with that much fan perform almost as well.
