Motherboard seller said no clearance problem between cooler and memory. But I asked Thermaltake via email and they said the cooler won't work with memory that tall (42cm per G.Skill).
While looking for a replacement cooler, I happened to look at the Thermaltake page for that cooler and it claims the model doesn't interfere with memory at all saying "Riing Silent 12 solves the co-existing problem of high performance RAM and CPU coolers, achieving the best RAM clearance." https://www.thermaltake.com/riing-silent-12-red.html
That page even has a pic of the cooler on an Intel board that shows the cooler not overlapping memory.
Anyone confirm which is right (web page or human tech)? They're closed on weekends so can't go for best out of 3 talking to Thermaltake. LoL
p. s. I've built maybe a dozen PCs for myself and others since 80286 days but my current one is an i5 about 5 years ago! Never knew this site existed until this build. Great place!
