    Default UD9 + oversized CPU coolers + Tall ram heatspreaders is it possible?

    I am looking for the highest performance CPU air cooler that I can use with the following build:

    LIAN LI PC-P80
    Intel Core i7-980X
    GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD9
    24GB G.SKILL Trident+ Turbulence II DDR3 2000 (8-9-8-24)
    LG Black 10X Blu-ray Burner
    2 Seagate Barracuda XT
    SPARKLE COMPUTER CORP 1250W ATX12V
    2 x SPARKLE SXX4651024D5-NM GeForce GTX 465 (Fermi)

    I was going to use a Noctua NH-D14 but I found it that it is too big to work with my RAM. Can I use Megahalems, Venomous X, or Cogage Arrow with my system? Are there other air coolers that I should consider? How far is the distance from the "CPU HIS" to the first memory slot on the UD9 Mobo?

    Thanks for any help!

    megahalems should be ok and its second best to the HUGE noctua,i have two fans in push/pull on my board,i know its different but the cpu and ram slots are in the same place and it clears my ram although if your using 12gb in the blue slots too it will block th first blue ram slot from cpu socket



    maybe someone with the same board can advise better but i think youll be fine with the megahalems

    i have ocz reaper ram and they have huge heatspreaders on them,they dont cause any problems with my heatsink and two fans attached

    I have 6 4GB ram sticks that I want to use so I need all of the DIMMS... So that means no megahalems?

    you can still use a megahalems but it would be a tight fit with the ram module in the first blue slot from cpu socket and two fans,ive looked at mine and it might just clear the fan i cant say with the megahalems cooler though,you could always attach one fan in a pull setup,then the modules wouldnt be affected

    look at this review with a megahalems and a ud9 it fouls the first blue ram slot with two fans attached

    Hmm that is interesting, I will look for a slim push and a fast pull fan. Is it possible to use two different fans on the same fan controller?

    The other options that I am playing with is returning the ram and going with Kingston Hyperx, or perhaps looking at the dreaded water options...

    I am afraid of water coolers due to dangers (water = conductive = scary in super expensive computer). Plus I am concerned with the required maintenance (don't you have to clean those out every size months) and what about the effects of corrosion in the water block and joints. Are these fears well placed in your opinion? I'm honestly not an expert at this. I'm just looking for a faster and cheaper alternative to the new mac pro. System will be 90% of work 10% for fun.

    Thank you for your help... Its very valuable to me.

    How would the Kingston Hyperx Ram compare to the Trident+ if I over-clock it? I read that 2000MHZ ram is better for six core processors then 1600mhz due to bottleneck issues.

    i wouldnt go for any watercoolers like the h50 or coolit domino,there the same performance as a good aircooler and they do break and leak,i had a domino that leaked best go for custom watercooled setup if you wanted to go that way or buy one slim fan and one normal and use those,might need to have them the same rated speed if your using a splitter coming off one fan header or fan controller header if not then you can use them on seperate headers on the fan controller and control the speed to each fan

    i dont know about it bottlenecking but with a hexacore chip it uses a lower uncore freq than the quads meaning you can run a higher ram speed and overclock better,so you will run 2000mhz speed better than you would with a 920/930 or any i7 quad,i dont know if you would manage to hit 12gb and 2000mhz though

    best way is to buy a slimline fan for the push side of the heatsink

    all i willl say is thats a lot of ram for that speed
    remember the memory controler are now in the CPU & you can ave 2 intel 980x chip and there is a chance one will run better the the other

    i have a 12gb kit of corsair that I was able to get to 1800 it was rated at 1600
