Hello. I have following parts: - ASROCK Fatal1ty Z270 GAMING-ITX/AC - DeepCool GAMMAXX 400 - Fractal Design Define Nano S - Corsair DDR4 16Gb Vengeance RGB white - Intel Core i5 7600

And RAM doesn’t fit with cooler. What can I do? Photo: https://photos.app.goo.gl/1h7BSlovTRzz3gW62

You really don't have much space to play with as that cooler is 154.5 tall and cpu clearance is 160mm, so I don't think moving the fan up would work. You could try putting the fan on the other side and see if it fits. Another option is getting a slim 120 fan but that would mean spending more money which makes no sense.

That is a problem, buying coolers for motherboards without a compatibility list and being mini itx makes things worst. Deepcool has a crappy one, which I wouldn't call a compatibility list.

Try to put the fan to the other radiator side.

When you are on a tight budget go for the stock heat sink. Unless it's OEM/Tray
