Dark Rock Pro 3 RAM clearance

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I ordered the Dark Rock Pro 3 this week because it was a great price without thinking about the RAM clearance for it. My motherboard is Gigabyte - Z370 AORUS Gaming 5 and the RAM I'm looking at is Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4-3000 Memory. I'm not sure if the motherboard would play a role with the RAM fitting in or not. I've heard that the clearance is 44mm maximum, and it probably doesn't help that I can't figure out how to view the specs as how high the RAM is, I know it's low profile, but I'm still worried. Thanks guys.

My TridentZ even fits under my Dark Rock 3 (non profit, which is still a similar height), so LPX will fit just nicely. Insert your memory before installing the cooler though!

its fine. the lpx is low profile anyway. hence the "LP" in the model name.
