Ram spacing question

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, so im getting MSI MEG Z490 ACE motherboard and 64GB of gskill trident z RGB RAM and i want to fill all 4 slots on mobo so i decided to go with 4 16GB modules, the water cooler that im getting is Corsair H150I PRO RGB and im wondering if pipes from water cooler are gonna block the DIMM slot closest to the CPU socket and i cant find much info anywhere, does anyone have similar setup, can you tell me if im gonna be able to put 4 modules of G.Skill Trident Z RGB with this water cooler

 

Another option was NZXT Kraken X73 due to its nice looking infinite mirror effect on CPU block but i am kind of liking Corsair more due to nice RGB integration with MOBO and all the corsair LED controllers and hubs but its still kind of an option so i would also like to hear your opinion on Corsair water cooler and fans VS NZXT

 

Thanks in advance :)

It'll probably fit just fine. Most of this stuff is normed and corsair definitely took a look into the ATX specification for this one to make it as compatible as possible. And if doesn't fit, you could always try rotating the waterblock.

I remember people having problesm with NZXT coolers blocking first DIMM slot and having to rotate it at cost of having logo sideways, i know i can rotate it if it makes problems but then logo will be sideways and my OCD will be killing me...

Logo would be sideways then, im asking because back on z390 motherboards corsair fit perfectly with that ram on MSI boards without blocking any slots but since z490 CPU socket is bigger im not sure if its still the case

Maybe this old thread can help you: 

 

Corsair h150i pro wasnt blocking any slots on older z390 boards but im not sure if new z490 boards are the same since the socket on those are apperently bigger than previous z270 and z390
