Right one more daft question which I just don't understand why manufactures do it....
I'm buying an Asus Sabertooth Z77 Motherboard & I want Corsair Vengeance RAM (might have to change though).
The problem I'm seeing is, if I buy a beefyish CPU Heatsink then I might not be able to use all my RAM slots, which brings me onto my a question, what were motherboard manufactures thinking when placing the RAM slots!! /rant over
So far it seems that in my setup I want I can buy an Artic Cooler Freezer 13 and it'll fit, but reading reviews it's not the best in the world, but anything else bigger and I'll be forced to give up a RAM slot.
I'm guessing if I was to have "normal" size RAM, I'd be able to have a bigger CPU heatsink? As the Corsair Vengeance has the big heatsinks on top of the RAM.
Any advice would be excellent.
Processor will be 3770k Ivy Bridge - Have no intentions of overclocking, room is just constantly quite warm
