Cooling Fan/Heatsink, Does it fit?

How do I determine that before a purchase?

Look at the height of your ram and the width of the cooler (and the fan height if you can move it, but afaik the 212 is a set position). I'l normally check these and maybe read some reviews; however, the 212 is a pretty thin cooler so you should be fine. For example:

The heatsink should fit on the board as long as it supports the socket. You should, however, consider RAM clearance between the cooler and the RAM modules.

I'm looking at the ram I planned on getting but even their manufacturer's website doesn't tell you the dimensions of the ram. Any tips on finding this?

It should fit with the 212, but what ram are you planning on getting?

This guy seems to have no issues:

And somebody in the comments says they are running the same setup. From the picture I sent above it seems to be, at absolute most, a tiny bit over slot 1, but that might just be perspective; and seeing as you are getting a 2x8 config you should just put one module in the 2nd slot and the 4th slot.

Yeah that's what I'm doing. I appreciate your help!

Although I doubt that you are going to have issues with that, you should make sure that the height of your cooler fits into your case. Just a heads up hehe.

I hope it does. I'll try to find info on if it will fit in a mid tower case. I have a full ATX tower I can refurbish but it's old and I'd prefer something a little smaller.

 

 

EDIT: the cooler is 158MM tall.

Then it should easily fit into loads of Full-Tower. Mid-Tower cases and ATX cases. But it is always good to make sure.
