Hi,

Got two questions that I need some help with today. I think I will be getting a Gigabyte EX58 UD5 motherboard and want to cool the chip with a Prolimatech Megahalems cooler. So, if I use two 25mm fans on this will this cooler restrict the RAM slots? I had planned on using Patriot memory, want 3 sticks initially but may upgrade to 6 in the future hence the question. I know the Patriots have a higher than normal heat spreader so if there is an issue with space could this be overcome by using something like the Corsair XMS3 or is that cooler going to give problems regardless of memory used?

The other question relates to space for a new ATI 5850. would that fit a Silverstone Fortress case ok with the above components?

Many thanks in advance.

Not 100% sure Im afraid, you might be better putting question about mobo in mobo section and gfx card in either gfx or case
Sorry
