    Hi Gang

    Looking at a build and was wondering if the following pats will pair up together without any problems:

    Gigabyte X58 UD5
    Patriot Viper 6GB Kit
    Prolimatech Megahalems Performance CPU Cooler with one 120mm Fan fitted on the heatsink, the same side as the memory bank slots when looking at the mobo
    I7 920 CPU

    My main concern is will the Heatsink Fit the board ok without fouling the memory modules as I see the Patriot Viper 6GB modules have fins ontop.

    If anyone thinks I would be better with an alternative memory set with a lower profile please feel free to suggest a set of modules that are good for 1600MHZ and 8 8 8 24.

    The setup will work fine, only time you may a get problem if want to run with all memory banks full.
