Default Gigabyte UD3 + aftermarket compatability?

I was looking to put an aftermarket cooler on my 1156, but the one I want looks pretty big, and I wanted to make sure it didn't block any of the RAM slots.

Tuniq 120 Extreme

Anyone got any ideas?

You'll be fine, i have a Cooler Master V6 and its almost as big just a bit bigger and it fits fine, doesn't block anything. just slightly blocks the mobo heatsink which isnt a big deal. Just make sure you install the ram first, the first one will prob get blocked
