So i am currently looking into new ram...
im looking at the "TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF"
but im a little woried about the height of this ram..
i run a. "Ultra / ChillTec / Socket 939/775/AM2 / Thermal Electric CPU Cooler"
which just so happeneds to hang about a half inch or so over my first DIMM slot.. [o and my mobo is the "780i SLI"]
So heres my Question... Would i be able to use a stick of this ram in the 1st DIMM without cutting heatsink fins? or will i have to do some moding to the rams heatsink?

I am sorry , i do not have an answer for you , however i would like to inquire about your cpu heatsink.
I have always wanted to ask somone that had that particular one, the performance of it, and how it stacks up to other heatsinks, true TT, etc .


My best advice on your problem is to bust out a tape measure.
