  1. It doesn't quite make it above the ram, the bracket that holds the fan clears the top of the heatsink so it isn't secure, but I'll double check it before I flip the fan.
  2. I'd like to find a solution where I don't have to sell and return parts. If it comes to it I will have to consider the other coolers and return the DR4 (thanks for the suggestions), I like to keep overclocking as an option but I'm not OC'ing at the moment.
  3. I haven't fitted the extra fan yet, I'm waiting for it to be delivered. I just wanted to see if there are more optimal solutions than what I'm planning on doing.
  4. I recently got some upgrades for my build, a new case (Corsair 110R), more RAM (2x8gb Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB 3000mhz) taking me up to 32gb with all 4 DIMM slots taken up and a new cooler (be quiet! Dark Rock 4). Build: i7 9700k RTX 2080 Super 4x8gb Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB 3000mhz be quiet! Dark Rock 4 Aorus Pro z390 Transferring everything over to my new case went fine, but my only problem was that now all my DIMM slots are taken up, the massive Dark Rock 4 doesn't clear my RAM, so turned it round to face the back towards where the exhaust fan will, no biggie. After finishing the build and testing it, I realised my temps climbed to about 81C at full load, 30C - 40C while idle. I realised that the CPU fan and the exhaust fan were pulling against each other and making some kind of hot air vortex in the case. So now I've resorted to flipping the CPU fan over so it's pulling air through the fins and I've bought an extra case fan to stick at the front of the case to help get air to the CPU fan on the other side. Is this an acceptable solution?
