Top mounted radiator fan pressing against memory

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I just mounted a 240mm AIO on top of my Phanteks P400A which is not compatible with top mounted radiators, but I really want to exhaust the hot air in my case with it. It is so tight that the fan on top of the memory, is actually pressing against it. I am concerned about this, it is not very hard but I tucked it in there. The fan is also not screwed since it is blocked by the memory(closer to the CPU cooler), however the other memory kit is fine since it is in the inner side of the fan. Imagine pressing a key on your remote, that how hard the pressure is. Should I be worried and remove the AIO and place it on the front again? Here are some pics.(The memory on the left is pressed down)

Honestly, imo, if it boots and passes memory related stress test (googlestressapp, or example) then I'd be okay with it.

I am using it now, it really looks fine but what if it damages the DIMM slot or something else?

It looks ok from here do you hear any noise from it hitting? Do the ram clips stay closed?

 

You can always get slim fans.

Yeah of course they are closed, they are on DOCP, as it was normally before, everything looks fine.

You could always take a small notch out of the fan frame with a Dremel, file etc
