Fitting of Cryorig H5

Hi guys! On my way to my first build.

Trying to fit this Cryorig H5 into a Phanteks Case.

http://www.phanteks.com/Eclipse-P400S.html

Case Clearence 160mm

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA4UF30R0134

Cooler mentioned as follow:

L98.5 mm x W143 mm x H168.3 mm (160mm if first RAM slot is not used.)

Does that mean I will never fully utilize my ram slots if I choose to go with this cooler?

Thanks!

Correct, should you choose to use the H5 Ultimate(not sure if low profile ram would be affected the same) .

However, Cryorig does offer a H5 Universal which is a version of the H5 with no RAM slot interference(stands at 160mm tall as well) by using a thinner fan. I would suggest switching to the Universal version should you wish to fill up all the ram slots, either now or in the future.

Ram would have to be 30mm or less

Corsair LPX is 34mm tall. Maybe using a ram without heatsinks or getting the H5 universal.

You can also go on cryorig's website and print out a foldable cutout to see if it fits on your mobo.

In general, what should I look for in a CPU cooler? The price varies so much from top to bottom......
