I'm in the process of cleaning and upgrading my PC.
4GB GSkill to 8GB GSkill
GTX260 to GTX 460
I have a Cool Master Hyper 212 CPU Heatsink and have run in to a problem with it and my RAM... with this this mainboard. ASUS P7P55D LE
Here's some images to help you understand.
Can I flip the CPU fan to the other side? Or is it a bad idea to have both fans so close together. Having both pulling air towards the outside of course.
The RAM has the same heat plates on them as well. I haven't tried to see if the stick would fit.. but it really doesn't look like it will.
I also have no thermal paste to move my heatsink around, I think it can be pointed in a few directions..
Any other ideas/suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: I removed the fan on the Heatsink and installed all my ram. Putting the fan back on and sliding it down into place (Its a tight fit) It comes flush with the RAM stick, so no problem after all.
