Couldnt find it in writing.. though i found a video on youtube.
He has the same heatsink but Corsair Dominators (same height 5mm i think)
Looks fine plus his got a cooler for the ram too.
Only thing im not sure of is the motherboard.. if its the same size etc.
Here is the video.

The D-14 does block the first memory slot (if you've got tall memory sticks), but unless you're populating all your memory slots it won't matter anyway. SB system right? 2x2GB kit, you'll only need two slots (channel A, which won't use the first slot). Nehuz

The NH-D14 blocks all of my memory slots on the P8P67 Pro.

ALL of them?! Man that thing is huge. I guess the only reason it's one of the best is because they just made as big as feasibly possible.

I have a picture that shows them being blocked but we'll have to wait until my new review is posted.

Aha, the fan covers it. Well *technically* you could keep the middle fan and just move the first fan from push config to pull. But yeah, wow. I didn't think it'd overhang that much. That board looks like MATX almost!
