I am sitting here with the following specs:
- Case: Sharkoon REX8 Value Edition Black
- Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970-UD3
- CPU: AMD FX-8320
- CPU cooler: Thermalright Macho 120
When I first ordered my computer, I didn't think too much of upgrading but now I do. I wanted to install additional RAM, however, I noticed that the CPU cooler is too big and is effectively blocking my RAM slots.
(More specifically, the cooler blocks the first slot. Slot number two, three and four are free so I can place three RAM sticks at a maximum. Nevertheless I want to take advantage of the Dual Channel ability of my motherboard so I want to get 4x4 running and not 2x4 and 1x8.)
It would be nice if the new cooler is small enough to free up my RAM slot and also is suitable to overclock my AMD to 4.0 GHz.
Money doesn't pose a problem here.
If you need pictures or additional information, I am more than happy to share some.
