Will this air cooler block the memory? please help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi there,

I'm building a new PC with ASUS ROG Maximus XI Hero (Wi-Fi)  Z390 motherboard and i9 -9900k and i hope the 

the cpu tempreture will be good on 4.2ghz ...

so I'm planing on using all the ram slots with 32gb but i'm so confused and afraid that the air cooler (DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX GT ) will not make enough clearance for ram slots so please any one can help me ? there are to option of ram :

 

- CORSAIR Vengeance RGB PRO
- G.SKILL TridentZ RGB

Links for rams and cpu cooler :-

Extremely overpriced and bad performer motherboard, any reason why you want it? an Aorus Elite is half the price but is significantly better as a product.

 

While it will run the 9900K your overclocking potential will be reduced while your VRM will be toasty.

This is an extremely underwhelming cooler for an i9 9900K, it will run -hot- but keep stock clocks, overclocking however is a nope.

Why do you need 32gb of memory? What are you going to do that uses all this memory? Have in mind you should probably use 2x16gb configuration after all the less sticks of memory you use the less points of possible failure.

 

All in all I would say you are over spending in some areas but lacking in others, what will you use this PC for? If you really need an i9 9900K then at least make the whole build balanced for it.

In the picture it shows Trident Z's with the cooler your looking at and since they are cheaper I would get them 

thanks , but the motherboard may be differnete than mine so differnet "measure " i think , what do you think ?

to be honest i don't like gigabyte but i'll look into it ... 

can you give me gigabyte motherboard with same price as asus motherboard .

 

(While it will run the 9900K your overclocking potential will be reduced while your VRM will be toasty) 

why would vram be toasty ? 

 

(This is an extremely underwhelming cooler for an i9 9900K, it will run -hot- but keep stock clocks, overclocking however is a nope.) 

Look men , I can buy an AIO but no one can know how much time it will last with me  , I'm not gonna overclock the cpu more than 4.5ghz " for now "and i think this cooler will give a decent temperature right ?  

(Why do you need 32gb of memory? What are you going to do that uses all this memory? Have in mind you should probably use 2x16gb configuration after all the less sticks of memory you use the less points of possible failure.)

the price of ram has drop so I'm taking advantage of that , is there any problem of using 32gb(4x8GB) rather than 32gb(2x16GB) ?

Simply because the Maximums Hero XI is a bad and overpriced product, I'll link to you to a decent enough video about the matter alongside the current chart of best options on spoiler below:

I'm not telling you to buy an AiO by the contrary I am simply telling you to look for a better Air Cooler if possible, the i9 9900K all core turbo is of 4.7ghz to begin with so it'll only run at 4.5ghz if it is thermal throttling.

Not used RAM is wasted RAM... but if you want to get all 32gb for the sake of it be my guest.

 

The problem is simply, you'll have more sticks that could get faulty, more DIMMS that could break, harder troubleshooting and such without mention the more sticks you use also the harder it is to overclock (or simply use XMP).

so it's better to use 32gb(2x16GB) but in term of function it does same as 32gb(4x8GB) right ? 

can you give a good air cooler that have big chance not interfere with ram slots , thanks . 

does thermal throttling is bad for cpu cause I'm planning to let be 4.5ghz only

The Gammaxx GT will fit fine and be enough for stock clocks. Why are you looking at this cooler in particular?

I'm gonna use the cpu on 4.5ghz only (for know ) and i think the temperature will be just fine and i need somthing that look nice also with ram clearance if you have any suggestions it would be helpful  .

thanks .

What do you consider nice looking? Is RGB a requirement?

Where are you shopping / located? Budget? 

What case are you using? Are you planning to oc later down the line?

yes rgb would be great ...

without rgb is just fine but i want somthing not blocking the hall view of ram and i can install all 4 rams . 

Amazon - newegg 

I'm using Cooler master MasterCase 500m , the budget is not consider a problem.

for now i'm not gonna overclock it to 5ghz i think 4.5ghz is good for me and may be after 3 month I'll overlock it to 5ghz with an AIO or whatever .

guys what about be quiet dark rock pro 4 I'm I gonna get enough ram clearance ? 

 

guys i think deep cool cooler is bad decision , so I looked for another one ...

 

 be quiet dark rock pro 4 is good one but it clearance is only 40mm and i can't move the cpu fan to install all rams also to be consider the height of ram :

- CORSAIR Vengeance RGB PRO
51mm 

-G.SKILL TridentZ RGB

44mm

also I found good ram HyperX Predator DDR4 RGB

43mm 

 

and the dark rock pro 4 has a ram clearance of 40mm so non of them will fit in all slot with  this cooler because i can't  make the cpu fan higher to fit all ram 

 

and here i found the Noctua - NH-D15S and i can make the fan a little heigher to fit the all 4 rams .

 

what do you think guys is noctua the answer?  

there is another cooler with good ram clearance the Thermalright Le Grand Macho RT what do you guys think about it in term of thermals ?

also my case is cooler master h500p do you think the noctua cooler will fit ?

I'm sorry but what's the point from you're question ? 

Amazon and newegg both have region specific sites that include the US but also other parts of the world. Recommendations vary depending on pricing and available so it's hard to make a good recommendation without knowing where you can generally shop from.

The DRP4 would fit but hang over the ram. It might override the point of using RGB ram. 

The NH-D15S and LGMRT are all similar to the DRP4 but are slightly noisier and completely clear the ram instead of overhanging. They should all fit. 

The NH-D15S only uses a center fan and there isn't a front fan to raise above the ram. If you're looking at the NH-D15, that isn't offset to completely clear the ram but would perform the best out of the coolers mentioned so far.

I think LGMRT is the on and it's also same as NH-D15 performance . 

I was wondering if you can recommend the SK Hynix chip Brand of the ram because it's my only option and it's fully compatible with the motherboard , samsung chip is really expensive .

The LGMRT generally performs similar to the NH-D15 but is slightly worse overall. It's often matched or outperformed by the NH-D14 and NH-D15S which both perform worse than the NH-D15.

The DRP4, NH-D15S, NH-D15, and LGMRT are all excellent choices for oc'ing. Which is most appropriate depends on your priorities. If you're not oc'ing much and aren't very sensitive to noise, getting whichever is cheapest is hard to go wrong with. If you're aiming to a black / rgb aesthetic and want your ram in full view, the LGMRT would be the best out of the 4.

Unless you're doing something that specifically reliant on fast ram, what you're getting is perfectly fine.
