I could possibly get it on the other side I guess but I only have 4 chips so they have gaps to cool off at least.
    The GSkill kit comes with an alternate clip for one side to address this issue that seems to work, but it is definitely a tight fit with the GPU, the monoblock and the shroud on the IO connectors.

GSkill and Dominator aren't throwing those in the kits to make you feel good about the extra $'s.
    Ive got nothing against fans (I have 13 of them in my case, granted they are all fixed at about 500 RPM and the things silent, but still 13 x fans is 13 fans. I swear you cant hear the case from 3 feet away though):

    But I'm running all 8 DIMMS at 1.35v (though its only 32GB total) and under marathon gaming sessions that roast the entire case through the slow oven effect, the RAM temps have never gone nuts.

    Shameless plug:

    This thread inspired me to make a newegg impulse buys and I ordered 2 x 32 GB kits, these:

    Damn I think 8 of them crammed in my case will look nice! Cant really afford to go the 128 GB route yet (and I want all 8 slots populated for looks, so 4 x 16GB kits are out of the question!)
    Carry on Sirs!

    skypine27, I observed a very noticeable increase in heat from these guys (16G DIMMS) over the 8G DIMMS (4x8 = 32G). It may not have been fatal to have them passive-cooled only, but given that I run these things for days at a time with very large and random memory access applications running at 100%, I don't like having things running hot if they don't have to.

    Same goes for my CPU. I really don't like seeing sustained temps over 65C. So, you may find that the temps stay within "spec" even without a fan, but I'd suggest you make sure they do since the 16G sticks have a higher heat density (more hot stuff in the same hot space) than the 8G sticks AND they are packed in, so passive airflow is impeded. You may also find with lower density DIMMS it just isn't an issue. My 32G kit barely ever got warm to the touch.

    thank you
    Well you can check my profile signature if you are interested on a 128Gb kit from GK. And it can be done, I'm running my at 2666Mhz @ 15-15-15-35-2T.
