CPU cooling for 2500k, mobo z77x-ud3h
« on: June 26, 2012, 05:22:20 am »
Just wondering what CPU coolers people are using with their z77x-ud3h.

I unfortunately have the Corsair Vengenace ram with the tall heat spreaders, and was hoping to find a cooler that didnt foul the first Ram slot.

Cheers,

The BeQuiet Dark Rock HSF's have a good clearance, alternatively get some low-profile RAM.

Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 works just fine with your set up ,no problems with your high Vengeance ram.

It is generally only the very large CPU coolers that are likely to foul the first one or even two RAM slots. Most ordinary heatsinks will fit fine.
