    Yeh, I hear you. I'm probably only talking 1mm less clearance here, but it is the "probably" that has me nervous.

    Odd then that Noctua rated their 140mm HSFs as okay, as long as the GPU doesn't "have large protruding components at the back".

    It will fit, but isnt cheap

    Would I be right in reading those pictures as showing an enclosure over the top of the GPU circuit board? If so, it may give me back that second mm of clearance.

    Many choose the crucial RAM which has lower fins and I have tried the tactical 1600 ver which is not listed as compatible but works on the max vii gene. Also these large coolers can take a lot of space in a micro art board, so the hot air build up would be faster. U may be able to get 4.4 on stock just because it is smaller and hot air has more room to disperse.

    Hi friends, so in the end a 120 mm cooler like phanteks tc12 has no clearance problems either with the first PCIe slot or the audio module on the GENE VII?
