Thanks, I did read that the other Corsair might give me a hard time setting them up but they still could fit. I will certainly change the RAM for the one you posted, didn't know they sell the same RAM but with more "discrete" heat spreader so they can fit. Now I can rest easy knowing I won't have problems with the size at all
