    Default ZALMAN CNPS12X and ASrock Z68 Extreme7 Gen3

    Currently planing on purchasing ASrock Z68 Extreme7 Gen 3 board with a Zalman CNP12X. I plan on using CORSAIR Vengeance LP 16GB.

    My question regarding these items is. Will the heat sink fit properly and allow for use of all the memory sockets? I'm also worried it wont make it past the chipset heat sinks. I do not have access to the specs of the
    socket area of the ASRock board is why I have come here to ask.

    Maybe someone can give me the height of the chip set heat sink and the dimentions of the socket area and socket to memory height as well.

    Thanks in advance...

    Paul

    Default Zalman specs

    Figured I'd add some additional info of the heat sink to see if it can be of help.

    Installation Requirements:
    The cooler's installation requires an unobstructed space of 151mm(L), 132mm(W), and 155mm(H), with the CPU as a central reference point.
    Please check if components such as ODD, VGA and PSU protrude into the required space.
    If the RAM memory's height is over 40mm after inserting into the RAM slot, then 1 RAM slot cannot be used due to obstruction.
